The Double-Crested Cormorants Are Back On Cape Cod!


I saw my first Double-Crested Cormorant this year at Rock Harbor a couple of days ago. What a treat! I love to watch them swim along and dive for food. They are so entertaining.

The Double-crested Cormorant is a medium-sized cormorant with an iridescent black body and an orange throat pouch. They frequently spread their wings to dry them.

This is the first one of the season for me… beautiful bird, don’t you think?
