Georgie Alexon / 1,006 items
This doubled-crested cormorant seemed to have no troubles finding an abundance of food in St Marks wildlife reserve, Florida.

A cormorant’s diet is almost all fish, with just a few insects, crustaceans, or amphibians.

These birds have impressive fishing technique: diving and chasing fish underwater with powerful propulsion from webbed feet. The tip of a cormorant’s upper bill is shaped like a hook, which is helpful for catching prey.
