September 2011, Snowy Egret and Double-crested Cormorant

September 2011: Snowy Egret (Egretta thula) and
Double-crested Cormorant (Phalacrocorax auritus)

This Snowy Egret is a juvenile which can be told by the yellowish-green stripe running up the back of its dark legs. Next year the legs will be all black with bright yellow feet. The Double-crested Cormorant's wings are outstrectched to help them dry since they are not fully waterproofed.
