Elaine Raine saw this young Double-crested Cormorant over the weekend in DeKorte Park. If you look at the photo closely, you'll notice it has some sort of metal pin in its mouth — not a good situation.

If you see the cormorant and it can be safely caught, consult the following advice on how to deal with injured birds, courtesy of The Raptor Trust website, located here. (Thanks, Elaine!)
