Cormorants In The Creek
The matte-black, prehistoric-looking Double-crested Cormorant sports yellow/orange facial skin at the base of their beak and is one of those birds that people don’t give much time to.
Many don’t realize the Double-crested Cormorant possesses a gorgeous teal eye when the sunlight hits it just right.
Double-crested Cormorants visit Cambridge Creek daily. Even with the past displeasure of Osprey Bella & Beau.
The Cormorant’s landing is always a fun challenge to try to capture.
They skid in for a long time!
The fishing must be good here in the creek, they come here and dive time after time.
Another look at that beautiful teal eye….
“Oops, sorry, ya’ll!”
From morning until sunset, they hunt the waters.

And when the sun goes down, the Double-crested Cormorant may stay and find a perch to drip and dry off, in his “I’m Batman” stance.

I enjoy and have a lot of fun with Double-crested Cormorants. 🙂
