By far the most widespread cormorant in North America, they nest in in colonies along ocean coasts and lake shores in many areas, and winters along coasts and in lowland areas of the Southeast, Southwest and Rio Grande valley.
Populations have dramatically increased since the banning of DDT in 1972, leading concerns that cormorants may start crowding out other colonial nesters.
