|Double Crested Cormorant|
Crow-duck is the name given to the Double Crested Cormorant by early settlers of North America. I found it fascinating when I discovered, from a close up photo on line, that he has emerald colored eyes. How sweet is that? I encountered this bird twice several years ago in spring, but never got a close enough view to take note of that particular physical feature.

My next encounter with this species took place at yet another pond, when I had my brother along but, unfortunately, not my camera. The next couple of photos belong to my brother, who gave permission to use them for this post.
