Double Crested Cormorant

Something new along the Sudbury River!  I look at this section of the river every time I drive by it (frequently), and today I spotted something I had not seen before on the opposite side of the river.  I parked at the train station and waited for traffic to abate before running across the road to snap this photo!

The orange throat indicates breeding color.  This type of bird can be found commonly along the coast or inland, but this is a first Ashland sighting for me!  (Click to enlarge photos)

It was looking around trying to figure out what the camera noise was....
