Cormorant on Highway Light?
Posted 28 April 2012 - 09:49 PM
highway lights. I was excited, thinking it would be a new hawk I haven't seen yet (I am only familiar with the
Red-Tailed Hawk), so that I decided to go through the ramp again. I got another flash of a view of a bird at another
spot on the highway, and the bird appeared to spread its wings--the impression was strongly
like what a Double-Crested Cormorant does with its behavior of 'airing' its wings in the wind.
I attempted another drive-by, but obviously an entrance ramp to an interstate highway isn't the greatest place
to get a good careful look.
But it made me curious, and my question is: have Double-Crested Cormorants been known to perch
atop highway lights? I've never seen anything like that before, usually around here it is overwhelmingly
Red-Tailed Hawks. The highway ramp(s) are near a sizable body of water...

I stand corrected~ While down in FL my husband and I saw DCC on the telephone wires drying their wings
