Birdland: The Cormorants Are Back

It’s March, and that means the gangly, prehistoric-looking Double-crested Cormorants have returned to Duck Lake in City Park. Dozens of birds are pairing up and sprucing up their nests, made of sticks and grass and sometimes trash, in the island rookery trees. Both cormorant mates work on the nest, with the male hauling in the sticks, and the female doing the building. They’ll generally have one or two broods a season.
