Bird Photos / Double-crested Cormorant

Last Update: 6/15/2013

We saw this first bird while fishing from the pier in Ocean City, MD on July 28th, 2005. We first saw its head in the water as it swam around, like a little tiny Loch Ness Monster. It then flew to the piling and aired its wings out for a few minutes. After this was done it flew away.
