Cormorants inhabit coastal and inland waters. They often perch with wings spread.|
Cormorants hunt by swimming and frequently peering underwater. When prey is spotted, they dive after it.
Cormorants nest in colonies, building platform nests in trees or on the ground. Males and females share all nesting tasks. A pair may reuse the same nest for several years.
The crests of the Double-crested Cormorant are rarely seen. Great Cormorants are occasionally seen in coastal areas.
