Double Crested Cormorant
This is a cormorant nesting colony. The first pic in the Spring
and next is later in the Summer.
With a large number of nests, the amount of.....
waste which is very acidic can kill the trees and bushes
forcing them to find another site.
Cormorants have less oil on their wings then most other...
water birds so they have to dry them in the sun.
This can be an advantage since it hunts underwater and
the heavier wings make maneuvering in that environment easier.
