I see this young Pelagic Cormorant almost every morning. It spends the night in the rocks opposite the hotel south of the park; I once took its picture sound asleep. All the runners, walkers, and nearby car and truck traffic don’t seem to bother it much. When it wakes, it slips into the water and begins searching for its breakfast just a few feet away from the rock border. It seems unafraid of people. The video shows a few seconds of the bird on its first pass along the shore.
