These double-crested cormorants are drying their wings after diving for fish. Are they visiting our area? You bet.
Double-crested cormorants were on the move last week along Lake Erie's shore. According to Jerry McWilliam's waterbird count, 2,125 flew past Presque Isle State Park last Sunday (Oct 27), 227 on Monday, and 680 on Tuesday. Then their numbers dropped.
When cormorants are on the move, the ducks aren't far behind.
November may be cold but it's a great month for watching waterfowl.
