Nests Galore/ Camera Critters
Have you ever seen so many nests in one tree? These birds are cormorants, nesting in early May on the shore of Lake Ontario in Hamilton.
The air looks smoggy because the plants in the distance are coal-fired ones. US Steel Canada is based here.

- East Gwillimbury is a rural town less than an hour north of Toronto, Canada's largest city. My family calls me CameraGirl because I take my camera with me wherever I go.
Oh EG, that is a really super shot. I think Cormorants are an interesting bird. We have lots out here but I have never seen their nests. They seem to be a social bird--always together gossiping about something.
About my eagle shots---I watched the Eagle fly in with Crows chasing it and just watched (camera in hand) and when it landed I thought--Take a picture dummy--So I did. I wish I got it in flight. MB
Oh my goodness! There's no room for leaves on that tree!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love this one. I've only seen cormorants perching on ferry pilings on the West Coast and I think they look like ancient, wise creatures from a distant time...especially all together like this!
I always get Cormorants and Anhingas mixed up. Here, we have Anhingas and for years, I referred to them as Cormorants.
urban blight,Audubon style.
You take just great photos, EG... It's a wonder that that tree can hold up all of those nests and birds!!! ha
Terrific photo of a mess! I didn't know these birds lived up north, too, which means that's another thing I've learned from your blog...
We have tons of them in Florida. But I've never seen one of their nests...
Have a great weekend!
My goodness! This is a maternity ward! This is great!
One big happy extended family!

I've never heard of them, but that's A LOT OF NESTS, indeed! WoW!
Would that be high rise apts. for cormorants? And no, I have never seen so many nests in one tree...of anything ever!
Yes, the cormorants nesting in groups like that is something to behold. Great capture!
Wow.. they are close together. I bet they are fascinating to watch.
That is an amazing photo and no I have never seen so many nests in one tree!
Hello dear EG
I'm completely amazed with these nests!Cool post!
Purrs and love
That's a lot of cormorants in one tree!! Fantastic picture!
Oh wow, that's an amazing photo. Great capture!
Bird apartment complex. Great find!
Talk about over-crowded neighborhoods! But you got a wonderful picture.
WOW ...awesome shot !!
I'm surprised that the tree is still standing ! :-)
I've never seen so many nests in one tree..
