Sea lions vs. cormorants update

See my post on the fence blocking the view of the cormorants at Breakwater blues.

The cormorants are gaining ground. Today while kayaking I spotted lots of courting birds, some mating and one early nester on the Monterey breakwater. And as you can see, comparing these two photos, cormorants are taking the top rocks and more sea lions are occupying the lower rocks.
