Blue-footed Double-crested Cormorant


This next bird became an interesting find, a Double-crested Cormorant with turquoise blue feet that matched its eyes!  Its webbed feet should be black.

I shared this one to an eBird Maryland cohort, and they’d never seen/heard this before.  It was suggested the change of the feet color is from its past diet.

Has anyone ever seen a blue-footed cormorant before?  This curious mind wants to know!  🙂

  1. It’s eyes are blue, too. Usually they are emerald green. It is not April the first…nope, never seen that before. Maybe a cormorant flew to the Galapagos Islands?
