Double-crested Cormorant

Phalacrocorax auritus


This bird is hard for me to identify. It is all black;the shine on its breast and neck was due to light reflecting off of wet feathers. It is a large bird and a cormorant and seems to have no crest. If I have made a mistake please helpe correct it.


Thanks to all for helping me correct this spotting!!!
