When I first spotted the perching birds (pictured above) from a distance, I was sure they were crows. As I got closer, I realized they were Double-crested Cormorants.and they were, after all, perched over the waters of the Holland Marsh Canal. But I had never seen cormorants perched in the tops of 40' hardwood trees before. There were about a dozen in total and they were taking turns at stretching their wings wide to dry them off, after diving for fish in the cold April waters of the canal.
