Neotropic Cormorant (Phalacrocorax brasilianus) (1) CONFIRMED
- Reported Jul 11, 2019 11:00 by Joan Lentz
- Devereux Slough, Santa Barbara, California
- Map: http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&t=p&z=13&q=34.4136013,-119.8756027&ll=34.4136013,-119.8756027
- Checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S58106409
- Media: 2 Photos
- Comments: "Continuing bird, although I hadn't observed it at its usual perch: a dead snag of Eucalyptus that overhangs the slough down at the south end of Devereux. You can easily see it by parking at the "bridge to nowhere" parking spot. Even this close to the bird, if you aren't aware of its small size, you might pass it off as another "double-crested cormorant". The photos aren't especially good, but you can see the faint white outline around the orange in the lower mandible area, although not well. No orange in he loral area, the way a Double-crest would have. Long tail is noticeable immediately, especially when perched in a tree like this, not so easily seen when the bird is on a log in the water."
