Cormorant

I watched this guy in the center of Dublin. He seemed to enjoy the sun and then flew away

I also love to see them enjoying the sunshine and drying out. A great bird to see.

What a delightful series. We have lots of these birds here in Florida. It's fun to just sit and watch them play in the water.

By the way, the dog in the Colorado photo is our Golden, Haley (or as we call her, Pookie!)...

cormorants are the love/hate birds. But I think they are quite nice. And beautiful in spring.

Here in my land abound cormorants feeding on the estuary of the many fish they catch under water.
Unlike most waterfowl, its feathers are not completely waterproof, so when wet, they increase d Epes allowing them to sink deeper and dive with ease. Once on the ground, spread their wings to dry.

Love watching these birds especially when they spread their wings to warm themselves under the sun. I recently discover a big colony right in Lisbon! :-)

We have double-breasted cormorants that breed between the two Great Lakes, Ontario and Erie. But yours look a bit different from the ones we have here.
