High Voltage Cormorant

Birding Fact #1: You never know what you're going to see when you go birding.

We were on our way to the Sacramento NWR, cruising County Road P in Willows (a back road that runs parallel to Interstate 5), when we drove up on something unexpected...
..this cormorant perched high up on a telephone pole.
We are always scanning the telephone poles and lines for kestrels and kingfishers, but we've never seen a cormorant this high up before...

Maybe he just wanted to make sure we got a good picture of those awesome webbed feet of his!
