The Cormorant is a fish-eating bird which nests in colonies along the east and west coasts of the United States and elsewhere. A few species also live on large island lakes and rivers. They have slender, hooked beaks; long, flexible necks; a patch of bare skin under the mouth; and a stiff tail. Their plumage is usually a glossy black; some have white areas and many have brightly colored featherless rings around the eyes. They dive and swim deeply underwater in pursuit of fish. These birds can grow to be up to 40 inches (100 CM) long.
