Cormorant

Hopefully the birds will continue showing themselves again when Chester and I take our walks along the Red River.  This time it was a Cormorant – but he didn’t make it easy.  I had to use the full optical zoom and then keep going into the digital zoom for the pictures that I got.

I believe this is a Double-crested Cormorant.  He flew in, floated on the water for less than a minute and then took off and was on his way.  He seemed to be looking up into the sky, so I’m not sure what he was looking at.  I was too busy snapping pictures to follow his gaze.
