Neotropic Cormorant -Borrego Springs

A gentleman from Belgium showed some of us a photo of a Neotropic Cormorant. He had taken it in Borrego Springs but was unable to give very good directions. I came out today to try to track it down.
It is at the DeAnza Country Club on the pond visible from Lazy S Drive shortly after you enter the property. The cormorant was visible from your car on the left side of the road.
I have never really birded this area- I think it may not be a birder friendly property. That being said, I would caution all visitors to NOT step on the grass. Best bet would be to park outside on Painted Rock and walk 50 yards up the road until you can see the bird. Please do not give birders a black eye by not observing common courtesies!
