Cormorant And Gull Sharing Lookout Duty

 My birding adventures are brief and less frequent during most of the summer. I came upon a rocky area in Saybrook where a cormorant and gull seemed to be sharing lookout duty.
 The rock next to them seem to be a popular spot among the local terns.
I like when cormorants spread their wings to dry. It looks like a bird that should be guarding Dracula's castle.
Here's a little clip of the terns. I just noticed that some were banded.

The terns are adorable birds. And I love the sharing, and the guarding pictures. I wonder if you have ever seen a program on Netflix called Puffin Rock. It is for little ones ages maybe 2-4, but beautifully made with a lot of information about sea birds. I think my husband and I enjoyed it more than the grandchildren!

Thanks for the tip. I may watch that tonight!

I don't think I've ever seen Terns in CT. Nice sighting. I haven't been over that way since March. The thought of driving through Waterbury on I-84 makes me groan, but I think I'll have to suck it up and head over that way soon.
