My wife heard our doggie barking a few minutes ago, went to the back yard and saw a bird sitting on the ground.

It then flew into a nearby tree.

Looks like a loon to me, but what the heck it's doing here, I have no idea!

Or as my buddy who tries to keep his private pond stocked with fish would say, "flying raccoon"

Yeah, pretty sure that’s a cormorant!

I hadn't considered Cormorants.

Yet even then, the nearest body of water other than a perhaps a swimming pool, is at least 6-7 miles away.

So what the heck was it doing in my very dry, pond-free, back yard?????

Flap, flap, flap, glide!

Flap, flap, flap, glide!

I did see a flock of Cormorants flying yesterday AM a mile or so away.

But Cormorants favor water and there is no water in my neighborhood!

Not a loon.... Damn cormorant.... Our DNR is about to start killing them again..... they’re decimating the fish in the Great Lakes.... Flying Rats...

Edit;;;; Flying raccoon like Glunt said is more accurate.... those damn birds eat baby fish at an unreal rate.....

Well there is Harry Reid and the cormunists that kept voting for him.

There was a good article in the Detroit Free Press a few weeks ago about them and how our DNR needs to start killing them again.... I suck at cutting/pasting/posting..... maybe someone can post it here so we can all read it an educate folks on how destructive a species can be if left unchecked.....

You can shoot them in Texas. Bu then again you can shoot anything in Texas.

When you googled loon for some reason the first pic is of an immature bird. Brown as chicks. Colored as adult. Awfully big to be brown tho.

Looks like a Juvi Corm...

Tastes like chicken....or at least a chicken that's been living on fish.

Definitely a cormorant. The island in front of my house is whitewashed and everything is dead from them roosting on it.

I have to add this is not the subject I was anticipating when I clicked on the thread :)…..

Ground check'em!

When I read the title I thought you were complaining about Calif transplants....lol

They are everywhere out here on the coast and protected!

Flying rats, they decimate ocean and river fish and many claim have taken a toll on young lobsters and stripers.

Why a damaging, useless, non-native species is protected I will never understand!.

Dozens of them where I fish in the river. Sounds like you are in the jungle when they make a scary sounding call.

Like my coonass brother in law says anything that ain't a duck is just a "flap and glide". Data what dat bird is.

Loon - Cormorant

We have both on our local lakes Kyle. Love the loons, not so much the cormorants.

Yep, Cormorant. Never used to be so many Inland, out West.

Every time I think I see a flock of ducks...it's Cormorants :^/

I don't know why I thought it was a loon, as I've seen plenty of both over the years.

One of the greatest sounds in nature is to hear a loon calling on a still lake just before sunrise.
