Mr. Barnett 
Thank you for reporting the Cormorants at U of R lake. They made a year round 
presence at Canterbury lake off Pump Road starting 3 or 4 years ago.Cormorants 
have made a great comeback in less than 20 years. In the early 1990's they were 
only a few at the Jamestown Ferry dock. They are now year round even on Lake 
Robinson in Rockbridge County (the county around Lexington VA) I have started 
to keep track of the ponds and lakes a mile or more from the rivers that do not 
connect to a  river  or only connect to a river by a mile or more of creek and 
contain Cormorants. I have the following locations so far by personal 
observation or listserve reports:What other inland locations can we add?
