Description:
The Double-crested Cormorant is a large, greenish-black waterbird with a slender hooked-tip bill, orange facial skin, and webbed feet set well back on its body. It is named for the two small tufts of feathers on either side of its head, which appear on the adults in spring plumage. The bird can frequently be observed standing erect on rocks or posts, sometimes in a spread-eagle posture; or swimming low in the water, often with only its head and neck exposed. On the water, it can be distinguished from loons by the distinct upward angle of its head and bill. Flocks often fly in "V" formations similar to geese. This behavior and their general coloring likely led to cormorants being called "crow-ducks" by early European settlers.

Damage:
There are about 30 species of cormorant worldwide, including six in North America, of which the Double-crested Cormorant is the most common and widespread, and the only species which is commonly seen inland around bodies of fresh water. In the Great Lakes region, the population of the Double-crested Cormorant showed an initial 30-year period of colonization (1920s - 1950s) followed by a 20-year decline (1950s - 1970s) and, most recently, a spectacular 20-year resurgence (1970s - 1990s). The significant 20 year decline is largely due to the effects of toxic chemicals used during that period, specifically DDT. Over the past 25 years the cormorant population has increased tremendously to almost alarming rates. Many fish-eating birds, and cormorants in particular, arouse suspicion and even hostility among fish harvesters, who believe that these birds reduce the numbers of commercially and recreationally valuable fish. There is also concern about the effect of cormorants on the vegetation in their nesting grounds. Cormorants can damage vegetation by stripping leaves from trees. The combined weight of the birds and their nests can even break branches. But perhaps most importantly, their excrement, which rains down to the ground from their nests, kills the ground vegetation and eventually kills the nest tree. In some cases, the loss of these trees can lead to increased erosion.

How To Control Infestations:
A range of measures can be employed to reduce the impact of predation by cormorants, but their effect will vary from one site to another. Disturbance by people is consistently effective, and visual or noise deterrents are most likely to work on still waters. These methods are less likely to be useful or effective on rivers.
