Neotropical Cormorant (Phalacrocorax brasilianus) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1413)
Canada (Ontario) Ottawa - A rarity from Texas that periodically wanders into Ontario. For the last few years one has been seen at the western end of Lake Ontario or along Lake Erie. It is quite a rarity in the east though.

This was lucky. I actually made three trips for the bird. On the first it was farther away. On the second I got this and a few others that were not bad but light was an issue the entire time. The final trip was a bust. Light was great but the bird was never close enough so few keepers. It's nice to have a little variety in these parts with cormorants, unlike the south where there is more to choose from.
