Double-crested Cormorants often stand in the sun with their wings spread out to dry. They have less preen oil than other birds, so their feathers can get soaked rather than shedding water like a duck’s. This picture of this immature Double-crested Cormorant was taken at the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge on a somewhat foggy, misty day.
