I have been monitoring the Pelagic Cormorant colony at Wilder Ranch for the Breeding Bird Atlas, and numbers are way down there compared to last year. According to Alex, this is the case for most of the cormorant colonies in Santa Cruz County. I presume this is because of poor feeding conditions for the birds, but I do not know of any data that verifies such a situation.

I'm wondering if anyone knows what happened to the cormorant colony that usually nests on the ledge at Natural Bridges. No one is there this year.
