Double Crested Cormorant September 18, 2018

Posted by Sobek in News.


So named because during mating season, it gets big white plumes of feathers on either side of the head, which makes it look very much like Bernie Sanders.

Beautiful, Sobek.

Are these the birds that are trained and used by fisherman in China to help them catch fish? If I recall, the fishermen tie cords around their throats to keep them from swallowing their catch, they bring their fish to the man who takes the fish — but after a time he allows them to eat one as their prize.

We have cormorants here on the CT River and out on the nearby ocean. Saw some today in fact, while we were working in RI.
