Cormorants Waiting Their Turn
Cormorants Waiting Their Turn

Double-crested cormorants can often be seen sitting on top of a stump or buoy in the water—looking for fish, fanning their wings, or seemingly just playing king or queen of the hill (males and females look alike).

Scientific name: Phalacrocorax auritus
