Hello from Newfoundland Canada. (1 Viewer)

Hi Birdforum peeps.

I’m Donna from foggy Logy Bay, Newfoundland.
It been since April 3rd our weather has been bad and not much birding going on. I did spend 2 hours looking for a Ruff that accidentally came here at an old racetrack in the Goulds, part of city of St.John’s. We did get lucky to see a Fieldfare in the deep of Winter. It stayed around for a few days eating Hawthorn Berries. We had a Tennessee Warbler make it through the whole Winter with the help of one dedicated man who shoveled out his mealworms/peanut butter at two in the morning after several snowstorms.
It’s well and happily singing in the trees. Also a wayward Yellow Breasted Chat stay from November until March 10th. We are hoping that a break in good weather made it fly south. Also a Northern Mockingbird made its home in a hedge in the middle of St. John’s surviving on Privet Berries.
I joined to ask about a photo I took of a Double Crested Cormorant. It has a top knot of white feather plumes. I couldn’t find any research for this Cormorant’s head feathers. It’s not the white crests behind the eyes.
I wondered if it’s a hybrid or a mutation.
Picture uploaded from my IPhone as my jpegs was too large.
