Phalacrocoracidae

Cormorant

These birds can be found almost anywhere on Galveston either in the sky, the water, or chilling on the electrical wires. Cormorants aren't the most photogenic bird to capture on camera and prove quite difficult to photograph when they are in water. Many times when seeing these birds on the water they quickly drive to depths as far as 45 metres or 150 ft. under the water. Although  these bird are mostly known for their fishing abilities they also have some of the most beautiful eyes on the island.
