Birds - Double-crested Cormorant
Class:Aves Order:Suliformes Family:Phalacrocoracidae


Double-crested Cormorant, Phalacrocorax auritus. A larger brown/black waterbird with yellow on the underside of its face. They dive for small fish. As adult males approach breeding maturit, their yellow chins darken into an orange and they form tufts of feathers over the brow. Nearly every time I have seen a Comorant it's standing on a tree top in or near a body of water.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
