Researchers in Voyageurs National Park are studying double-crested cormorants. The fish-eating bird's population has gone from threatened to booming in just two decades. Radio transmitters are being used on the birds to find out where they eat, how many spend the summer on Lake Kabetogama and how they fit in the park's ecosystem.

Do you have any pictures of Cormorants? I'm not sure I could point one out in a crowd, but pretty cool name. I'd love to see more images of animals on this great site - maybe everytime a specific animal is mentioned it can be hyperlinked to an image and description.
