So sorry, forgot. Yep, Double-crested Cormorant.

Ty - My IBird Photo Sleuth App is normally extremely reliable, but I doesn't know the difference between a Double-crested Cormorant and a Neotropic Cormorant.  I get excited with the bad IDs as I've never seen a Neotropic, but you guys bring me down to earth. ?

No problem! Honestly I've never seen a Neotropic either, I'm a pretty new birder.

This is a double crested. The structure is different on neotropic, the tail is also much longer. Also, neotropic usually has a white “ v “ under the chin. Here’s some of my photos of the neotropic i saw this summer.
