    The hook on their beak looks like it could tear some stuff up!

    Thank you.

    I'm sure I wouldn't want to get close to the business end of any cormorant.

    I've only seen them on the East coast and Europe so far.

    Sorry I should have been clearer.
    This I took with less than 200 mm zoom

    They are quite common in Hyde Park at times, they come stay for a few weeks until all the big fish have been eaten, go and come back when the small fish are big enough to be interesting and then the cycle starts again.

    This is such a common place to see them (why can't they turn round)?? I have seen other people put similar photos on flickr.

    That is a Double Crested Cormorant. They are quite common in Ontario.

    Close looking in the summer but if you get the right angle you will see two plumes of feathers. One above each eye.
