Double-crested Cormorant

Phalacrocorax auritus

Description:

I think these may be cormorants, but two of them are much lighter than what I can find in pictures... Juveniles, perhaps?

Habitat:

Tidal zone of the Delaware River. Photo taken just after high tide.

apparently, J, I'm in one of the few breeding areas in the Northern areas that this bird travels. I feel pretty lucky to have gotten 3 in one shot. I'm guess one momma, full seated, and other two, her babies.

Fantastic, Nina! I didn't know they came this far north. Just beautiful!

You might remember me as J or jgorneau.

Cool. After reading the id link, I see that the young ones are paler like these. Thanks for the help as i'm not a birder, but these looked so darned cool and I watched them fishing.
