The Bay Bridge and Richmond-San Rafael Bridge have hosted the Bay Area’s largest nesting colonies of Double-crested Cormorants for decades. But now these colonies are declining, and their nesting structures are being dismantled or blocked off for maintenance. Where will the cormorants nest in the future? Learn about this resilient species and what researchers are learning about the regional population of this adaptable yet maligned bird.
