Oh...Scott...Very - Very nice! Are they truly flightless? Cormorants are among my favorite birds.

Yeah, they have tiny little wings that are useless for flying. But their feet have become incredibly strong. I have video of one about 20 ft under the water hunting for food. They're awesome.

Go figure...they are blue eyed penguins. smile I would love to see that video. I am assuming that you took a housing under water?

Actually, I just used a GoPro. I'm falling in love with that little device.

James, here's an example of the wings on a Flightless Cormorant.

Hey Scott,

Thanks! I thought I answered this...but I guess I did not. frown This is so cool. You are really fortunate, Scott.
