- Comments: "Standing at the dam at LLC, we were looking north towards the reeds at the far north end of the lake, and Marilyn saw the Least Bittern fly up and then land back in the reeds. She described the wing pattern as having colors: beige, black and white. A small bittern, not like American. I, of course, was not looking in that direction, but Marilyn's eyes are superb and I'm sure that's what she saw. The location matches generally the location mentioned by others: at the north end of the lake near the inlet where the water separates the reeds."

Neotropic Cormorant (Phalacrocorax brasilianus) (1)
- Reported Jul 03, 2020 12:51 by David Compton
- 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/checklist/S71097559
- Media: 2 Photos
- Comments: "Perched on a snag next to a Double-crested Cormorant, providing a sharp size contrast, with the Neotropic being much smaller. This is what first caught my eye about this bird, which had its head tucked when I first saw it and for much of the observation. I watched it for more than 20 minutes, trying to get photos, although this effort did not produce great results, given the distance (60-70 meters) and my poor photographic equipment.
The bird was black through the wings, tail, and body, and most of the head and neck. The wing coverts and scapulars were glossy. The wing covert and scapular feathers had flat dark shafts that stood out against the otherwise shiny black feathers, which also appeared to have a little flatter black around the fringes, giving the bird an indistinctly scalloped look. The underparts were in shadow during the entire observation and appeared to be a flatter black than the wing coverts and scapulars. A narrow but distinct white area bordered the base of the bill along the bottom and sides, extending slightly around the gape. The white patch formed a distinct point around the gape, in the direction away from the bill. One or two small and vaguely white spots were on the side, and near the rear, of the head. These barely show up in my poor quality photos. The bill was yellow-orange in the basal portion, and pale and comparatively colorless in the distal half. My photos indicate the mandible may have been orangish to the tip, but suggest the maxilla was just grayish at the tip. The yellow-orange of the facial skin did not wrap around above the gape, as far as I could tell. I could just make out green in the eye from time to time.
As noted above, the bird was much smaller than a Double-crested perched next to it. The tail was proportionally longer than that of the Double-crested. Although the tip of the tail remained in the water for much of the observation, when the bird lifted its tail to preen it, it looked longer than the tail of the Double-crested, certainly in proportion to its body. The bill was proportionally shorter than that of the Double-crested."
