[va-bird] dying cormorants

I was wondering if any of you all have noticed
this or can give an explanation of it.
The family of one of my students has a place down
near Reedville in the Northern Neck.  Last
weekend he noticed over a dozen dead cormorants
along the shoreline.  He also saw one sick/dying
cormorant who could not fly. It was swimming in
the water, twitching its neck, and gaping its
mouth open and closed.  Anyone know anything
about this?

Thanks
Fred
