They are on the move. I actually added D-c Cormorant to my yard list the other day with a V of them flying high overhead. The gulls helped me get them. I was talking to neighbors...converting them over to the dark side of birding as it happens, and a shadow crossed the sun. It was a Ring-billed Gull, but as I blocked out the sun to see the gulls I noticed the flock of cormorants also crossing near the sun. Was hoping to pick out a Great Cormorant, but they were just too high up.
Species #147 for the yard list and pretty amazing that I had Tundra Swan, Mourning and Cape May Warblers before I had Double-crested Cormorant.

I was in the North Carolina Outer Banks today, and saw literally thousands of Cormorants (I think Double Crested - hard to tell from a moving car) moving East to west just south of the Route 64 bridge. I suppose they are headed our way in CT?
