Double-crested Cormorant (Male)
The Double-crested Cormorant is found from Alaska to Newfoundland and Labrador, and from northern Canada to northern Mexico. It was twice greatly reduced in numbers, the first time in the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries, and then again, in the mid-20th century, when the widespread use of the pesticide, DDT, caused this and other fish-eating species, such as the Brown Pelican and Osprey, to fail to reproduce. This is done in gouache watercolour and felt pen, with a bit of colour pencil, on paper.
