#259: Opportunity-A Murder of Crows

This is the weekend of Nantucket's first Birding Festival
I'm not a part of the birder community on the island
as their primary walks occur Sunday morning.
I do at least recognize crows:
I was on a rantum scoot with a friend 
around the middle moors when,
suddenly, there was a cacaphony of cawing,
a few birds...

 Then, a murder of crows:
I'd never seen so many in one place.
When you get outside,
you catch opportunities to be thrilled and amazed.
There's so much to see-and hear-in God's glorious creation.
Such as this beauty, at Long Pond.
Does anyone know what he is?
Martie informs me it's a cormorant. See his blog here.
Thanks, Martie.
