Hey Tweets...If anyone is going to be at the Westport Marina, I would
appreciate they check the north side for the green post with the #7
reflective sign for a cormorant with a "dirty white" breast. I received
a call from a man watching this bird and asking me if there have been
any reports of a Guanay Cormorant (native to Chile and Peru). He
admitted it was a real long shot but could not find anything else to
explain the white breast.

He was sure it was a cormorant, but could not tell if it had the red
around the eye. One other notable difference was his bird had black legs
and feet; a Guanay has pink feet and legs.

So we are wondering what else it could be. Due to previous commitments,
I have not been able to go look.
