Double-crested Cormorant

adult cormorant

Dear Friends, last week i was treated to a pontoon ride down the st croix river.   me and several members of a camera club went for a lovely drive.  The evening could not have been better weather wise and we got a closeup view of the rookery just north of Stillwater MN.  This is one of the adult cormorants that was perched above nest of juveniles that are almost fully grown.  The image below shows them being typical youngsters rabbling about.  so til Tomorrow MJ
