Double Crested Cormorant Drying Feathers

Double Crested Cormorant Drying Feathers

These birds dive to pursue fish underwater and, unlike most other birds, they lack the oil glands that help feathers shed water, so they must periodically spread their wings to dry as this one is doing in a bald cypress at University Lake in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
