Bird Island

Bird Island located in Point Lobos State Park is quite the sight. The photographs above show only a slight fraction of the possibly more than one thousand birds that nest and take refuge there. Aside from the seagull at the bottom right, the majority of the birds are Brandt’s cormorants.

It is quite the sight to see when coming upon it. The birds cluster together, and cover the island in blackness. There is an extremely pungent odor in the air, as you get closer.

  1. Now there’s a busy party.

  2. Seeing all those birds coming in at one time must be a sight to behold.
