How to Identify
An all black bird with yellow to orange bill and face. The bird either stands on rocks or wood trunks, sometimes spreading out its wings to dry them or it flys up along the river, plunges into the water and dives for fishes.
Where When to Spot
I see them almost on every visit to Rapids Park Lachine from early spring to late autumn.
