Carl: I love the picture of the cormorant. I think it's a Brandt's. You can join the ranks of underwater birders. You can make it a total of three people. An old dive buddy got me started when he saw a belted kingfisher at 60 ft. I've never seen that, but I have a half dozen species I have seen underwater. Thanks for posting.

Great capture of the cormorant! I remember being at 60 fsw, seeing one fly by, and thinking "I must be narced..." 🤣🤔🤤
