For those that have seen the image “Gator Country”, this is picture I was taking when I almost stepped on the alligator.

This was taken on Kiawah Island in South Carolina on the edge of a water hazard on a beautiful golf course.

The Double-crested Cormorant (Phalacrocorax auritus) is a member of the cormorant
family of seabird

It occurs along inland waterways as well as in coastal areas, and is widely distributed across North America, from the Aleutian Islandsin Alaska down to Florida and MexicoMeasuring 70–90 cm (28–35 in) in length, it is an all-black bird which gains a small double crest of black and white feathers in breeding season. It has a bare patch of orange-yellow facial skin. Five subspecies are recognized.

The Double-crested Cormorant is found near rivers, lakes and along the coastline. It mainly eats fish and hunts by swimming and diving. Its feathers, like those of all cormorants, are not waterproof and it must spend time drying them out after spending time in the water. Once threatened by use of DDT, the numbers of this bird have increased markedly in recent years.
