Double-crested Cormorant in flight, & Sea Lion in water.
Of the 40 or 50 sea lions I saw in the last two days, at least 3 had some serious injuries. One was missing an eye, one appeared to have a large hook caught in its mouth, and another had a large sore/scar on its mouth. Many of course have numerous scars on their bodies.
Besides fighting with other males, they are injured by hulls or propellors of boats, they get caught in fishing nets and lines, they sometimes get shot by fishermen, and they probably get chased by Orca Whales.
