Barry MacKay cormorant
(Artwork - 038)

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.  
This is actually one of my favourite vignettes.
