Cormorants Joined By Gull - Harlequin Duck and Spotted Towhee Too

We got a chance to walk along South Beach on Bainbridge Island.  Mostly we saw cormorants, and from what I can tell from the Slater Museum's blog, some if not all are Double Crested Cormorants.  The markings on the bird at right match what they say is a Double Crested Cormorant.  I just don't have good enough shots of all the others to know if there are any of the two other cormorants the Slater blog says are in Puget Sound - Brandt's and Pelagic Cormorants.



Here a gull joins the line-up of cormorants.  

A harlequin duck swam by in the background.

And on land we saw this spotted towhee.
