Double-crested Cormorant

Fortunately for birders, cormorants have to spend a lot of time out of the water drying their feathers because they are not "waterproof" like the feathers of many water birds. That means we have a better chance of seeing them up close occasionally. I found this Double-crested Cormorant last week on a piling in Astoria, getting ready for his next fishing expedition.
