When photographing at the Brigantine Division of the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in NJ, you often see large groups of Cormorants swim by in the channels along the Wildlife Drive. This group had about 92+ Cormorants in the Group. It is hard to get an actual count because some are under water as you are counting the group. I counted 92 Cormorants in the image, but some more were not visible as I was counting.
Well, we can count eight in the close up. 🙂 I only see a couple at a time here, if more than one, so had no idea they travelled in such large numbers. I imagine some ducked under and others popped up during the pano frame captures.
Yes, they seem to go under here & there as the whole group swims by in mass. I have seen even larger groups of Cormorants farther out doing this also.
Try outs for the cormorant synchronized swim time!
Yes! Like that comment!
