First egg for Brandt's Cormorants at La Jolla Cove

This morning (1/11/19) a friend and I saw an egg for the first time this season at the Cove's Brandt's Cormorant rookery. Two females were hunkered down quietly on their nests, and when one stood up, there was an egg. So there might be one or more under the other female too? Lots of active displaying going on among the other birds. Their throats are really blue, and the white nuptial plumes seem especially handsome this year.
