I don’t know what it is with me and birds, but here we go again.  We sailed out to Looe Key on Sunday to spend the night and get in some snorkeling.  Two young cormorants took a liking to us and our boat.  Here is one of them trying to balance on our life-line, which runs the perimeter of our boat.  boatbird

He jumped around the boat, trying to get comfortable, I imagine.

Soon, his mate joined him.

And here is where they spent the night… on our boat… all night.

Later in the morning, we saw this beautiful flock:

Being July 4th and all, I felt the need to photograph something patriotic:

The End. Of the Fourth of July weekend of 2016.
