In Search of the Brandt Cormorant

 In search of the Brandt Cormorant and found a guide with insight and heart

In Baja California
Lives Maria
Defender of birds
Their ecosystems
Bird identification
Passion for her country
Stealthy, whispering
Vanessa – Look
Right there, do you see that handsome Cormorant?
He has attitude
He’s looking right at you!
Who is watching who?
The birds are shy, secretive
Camoflauged so well
There he is
Do you see his blue throat?
He is showing off for you.
Love for what she does
Maria, Bird Guide
You can find Maria at this website!


  1. Birds are wonderous. I want to know more. I want to be an official bird watcher with my binoculars. Alas! I do not have the required patience but I do have the appreciation. Now I have added a new species to my knowledge base and learned of one of their defenders Maria.

  2. I confess that I fear birds. Having said that this picture is beautiful and I wonder (I know) that my is the case with so many fears...comes from ignorance. Perhaps I should get to know more about this fellow, the Brandt Cormorant. Thanks for the introduction!
