Young Cormorant…correctly identified as a Gannet

Young Cormorant by Jenn Dixon (2007)

At least I think it’s a cormorant. It’s got the beak of one. Cormorants are usually all black, though, so maybe it’s a juvenile. Can anyone clarify?

The Husband and I found this guy on the beach at the Outer Banks in October 2007. He was just sitting there like he owned the beach. All I know is that I wouldn’t want to be pecked by that beak.
