Nesting Brandt’s Cormorants

Point Bouchon is owned by PG&E and visitors are allowed to hike there during certain times of the day. You must sign in and out. If you were allowed to hike far enough, you’d encounter the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Plant. There are signs all over the nearby area warning that sirens may indicate an emergency. This is one of the most beautiful parts of the California Coast, and not as populated, making it even more of a treasure.

It is adjacent to Montana de Oro State Park, and well worth a visit. Here are some images from two May visits, including a colony of Brandt’s cormorants just setting up nesting on offshore rocks.
