This is the first time ever that I spotted a double-crested cormorant (Phalacrocorax auritus) north of the Florida gulf coast.
This isn't a great picture of one. It's just swimming and diving around in the Monongahela river near the Decker's creek confluence. It has the prettiest color eyes.
According to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology site, this bird is well within its migratory range. It looks like it breeds in Canada, so this one is likely just passing through.
