Cormorant Wing, Everglades National Park, Florida
The Double-crested Cormorant (Phalacrocorax auritus) spends its time in the water and on land. Cormorants dive to catch small fish, swallowing them whole. After swimming and diving, cormorants stand on rocks, docks, or trees with their wings spread out to dry. Cormorants have a patch of colorful yellow-orange skin around their bills.
