The Cormorant - Phalacrocoracidae - is a very cool aquatic bird. It has a dark body and a long, snake-like neck. It can swim underwater after fish! Then it sits on a rock with its wings stretched out to dry off again.
These cormorant photos were all taken on Manchaug Pond in Sutton MA in September 2012. There were multiple cormorants in multiple parts of the pond.
