The Cormorants; Random Lake Scenes


Photos during bird-watching yesterday: A total of six double-crested cormorants were on Lake Kittamaqundi. They should be migrating south soon.

Double-crested: the "default species" of cormorant for this location. The double crests are visible on the heads of adults during the March-May breeding season. Larger, all-black individuals are adults. The birds with the buff-colored fronts are younger.
