Double-Crested Cormorant

The Double-Crested is the most wide-spread Cormorant in North America, and is really the only species to be found very far inland. I've seen them in flocks of hundreds, if not thousands, off the Trinity River in Dallas in the evening.

The crests become very visible during the spring months, when the Cormorants try to attract a little extra attention.
