Double-crested Cormorant


(Nannopterum auritus - formerly Phalacrocorax auritus)

The familiar Double-crested Cormorant is by far the most widespread North American Cormorant, found both inland and all along both coasts as far west as the Aleutians and as far east as Newfoundland. Its “bad hair day” head crests are not always seen, but it always shows orange in the face.
