A look at Lake Champlain cormorants (photo gallery)

Crown Point bridge, Four Brothers Islands, and Rouses Point are a few of the places where you can find them in large numbers. The dark birds have also been showing up in interior Adirondack lakes. I noticed one myself in September on Mirror Lake. Explorer Editor Brandon Loomis noticed several cormorants on Raquette Lake during the same time period.
