Photographer's Note

If you pass along the scenic island highway north on Vancouver Island to Campbell River often you will see commorants resting on these rocks just across Quadra Island. I managed to capture these birds in good lighting a couple weeks ago. These birds eat small fish from the ocean and by judging from the amount of wildlife in this area the sea still delivers its bounty for many. I have been impressed with the sea life in this area and whenever I passed into Campbell River I always saw these birds resting on these rocks. In a way they have become a signature bird in this area, along with the variety of other sea birds that dwell here.
I am still wondering what the white fluffy thing is on the tip of their beaks. Any suggestions?
