Cormorants at Manhattan Park in Cedar Rapids, IA. They are migrating south for the winter.
Male Mallard Duck out for a swim.
Cormorants are fish hunters. They will dive and swim underwater for about half a minute searching for food.
After their swim, Cormorants will head to a tree to dry off their body, especially their wings before heading back to the water to hunt for more fish.
