As the Northumberland Ferry chugged out of Caribou, Nova Scotia, bound for Woods Island on Prince Edward Island, it glided past this matched pair of cormorants perching on a buoy. Thousands of these homely seabirds clotted every horizontal surface around the ferry terminal. They may be ugly, but they are graceful and swift on the wing.
