Double crested cormorant

Phalacrocorax auritus

Description:

The double-crested cormorant is found near rivers, lakes and along the coastline. These were in a fresh water lake within 5 miles of the ocean. Mainly eats fish and hunts by swimming and diving. Its feathers, like those of all cormorants, are not waterproof and it must spend time drying them out after spending time in the water.

Habitat:

Freshwater lake during the daylight hours. Live elsewhere during the night. Migratory, these only appear from January through April.
