Beautiful Black Bird

This gorgeous bird, which may be some sort of duck (?), was resting in the Japanese garden pond at the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens. I cropped the photo in very closely so you could see that his eyes nearly look like jewels! If anyone knows what sort of bird this is, please let me know. ~SueBeeBeautiful Black Bird

    I love cormorants but have never seen one this close-up…the eyes are gorgeous

    Possibly a cormorant because of the hooked beak.

      I looked it up, per your suggestion, and it certainly seems to be a double crested cormorant! Thank you 🙂
