Cormorant, October 30, 2019

Wild Bird Wednesday and My Corner of the World

Pickwick, Tennessee, USA, October 27, 2019
Double-crested Cormorants, Phalacrocorax auratus, are migratory birds whose crests are present only during breeding season. They come to us here in the southeastern United States to spend the Winter before going back north in the Spring to nest. They eat a wide variety of fish, diving, chasing, and catching them underwater. (Note the sharp hook on the end of the bill).

Have a wonderful day!
