Geo 730: September 24, Day 632: The Birds

The sheer number of birds nesting on this rock was overwhelming. People were grumbling about the stench, but I hardly noticed it in my awe of the density of living things in front of me. I'm not going to try to guess what species are here; I don't know my birds very well. The full-size panorama is 6148 by 1331 pixels, so even expanding this image to full size, given blogger's size constraints, results in a tremendous loss of resolution. Below are some crops to illustrate:
