Adelaide birds

These two come from the beach at Glenelg.

This breakwater is cormorant heaven. Most of those in this shot are Black-faced Cormorants BfC), but the alert observer will also pick out Little Pied Cormorant and Pied Cormorant. I could only see half the rock (it being too cold to swim to the seaward side) and tallied 212 BfC.

This Pacific Gull was on the beach in front of the breakwater. The massive bill, with red on both halves is a great field mark. A missing foot is not a field mark but merely a sign of poor judgement in assessment of passing fish!
