Microsoft Rewards A, B, or C? Bing Homepage Quiz: When they’re on dry land, great cormorants like these are often seen…
A Pecking at the ground for insects
B Holding their wings open
C Burrowing into nests in the dirt
Like all cormorants, the great cormorant’s plumage isn’t waterproof. So when one comes ashore, it dries itself off by spreading its wings open like a scarecrow, often holding the pose for long periods. This behavior may also help with digestion or regulate their body temperature. Or maybe it’s just showing off.
The correct answer to this quiz is Holding their wings open.
