Double-crested Cormorant (Phalacrocorax auritus)

Double-crested Cormorant (Phalacrocorax auritus)
The double-crested cormorants have returned for another year.  At Jenney Pond in Plymouth, Massachusetts.  There was a flock of around 30 double-crested cormorants swimming in the pond.  Some birds took off and flew away, and others came and landed back on the pond.  Because we are getting into the breeding season, the Double-crested Cormorants at developing the black crests on the head, which gave them their name.  The crests disappear after breeding season.  The Double-crested Cormorants feathers on their body and wings are a lighter brown and ringed with black.  Their eyes are aquamarine in color and a very sparkling.
