Double-crested Cormorant (Phalacrocorax auritus)
This is another of the quickly done, vignette watercolour paintings I am doing to illustrate a book on the Double-crested Cormorant, a species widely distributed throughout so much of North America and the West Indies.
This is a portrait of three siblings in the same nest. They are
around four or five weeks of age, and they really crowd each other (in some
nests I've seen five, and egg clutches of as many as seven have been
recorded). They sometimes leave the nest at this stage, and return.
