Little Lake Cormorant

For the past week or so there has been a cormorant hanging around on the small lake (appropriately named "Little Lake") behind our house.  It is the first time I've ever seen one on Little Lake.  While not the prettiest of birds, I do still enjoy seeing them especially when they are in such a photogenic location.  His favorite perch seems to be this tree right above the beaver lodge.  I've seen him perched on other trees but most frequently on this one.  We've seen him perched with his wings outstretched to dry them, which would make a great shot but we've only seen that when riding by on our bikes and the camera was left at home.  Still, I've been able to get some nice shots of him including one morning when he flew from his perch after watching him for about 10 minutes.
