    Does anyone know what kind of bird this is?
    I definitely plan on going back and reshooting, but I'm interested in knowing what it is. :)
    TIA!

    Been wading through my "Seabirds: An identification guide" by Peter Harrison (Croom Helm) and the best match I can see is the Double-Crested Cormorant. According to the guide, it ranges across North America from Alaska and Newfoundland, south to California and Florida. Guessing that covers where you shot it.

    Yeah, I saw loads of these in Vancouver, but couldn't get close enough for a decent shot with my lenses :D

    We have lot of them around here, but they really don't like you getting close.

    :lol: yes that definitely spans my local area.

    Thanks for all the comments. I actually had a pretty good hiding place behind the wall of cattails, though I'm not very pleased with how the shots came out.. :roll:

    It looks more like a European Shag. I photographed a few of them that live at Howth Harbour here in Dublin.
