I am not sure if this is the same Double Crested Cormorant that was here a few weeks ago but it very well may be. This is a water bird similar in habits to the ducks. It eats fish, frogs, turtles, small aquatic animals and aquatic insects and worms. It is an excellent diver. I first noticed the cormorant when I saw a trail of bubbles on the surface of the pond. These water birds are uncommonly seen Fall and Winter visitors from up North in the Midwestern states as well as both coasts of the USA. I took these pictures here at the little pond on September 27, 2012. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
