Cormorants are funny creatures. And I find those green eyes to be truly startling! I am not aware of any other bird that has green eyes.

The outer portion of a cormorant’s feathers is not waterproof and in fact retains water. They have to spread and flap their wings in order to dry them after swimming under water looking for food. Who knew? I thought every water bird had water proof wings!
