Artist's Description

These two double crested cormorants were sun bathing on these dead branches in the Des Plaines Fish and Wild life Area in Wilmington, Illinois. Photographed with a Canon 7D DSLR and 100-400mm Lens.

The gangly Double-crested Cormorant is a prehistoric-looking, matte-black fishing bird with yellow-orange facial skin. Though they look like a combination of a goose and a loon, they are relatives of frigatebirds and boobies and are a common sight around fresh and salt water across North America—perhaps attracting the most attention when they stand on docks, rocky islands, and channel markers, their wings spread out to dry. These solid, heavy-boned birds are experts at diving to catch small fish.
