The Cormorant. A heavy boned, swim low in the water, ugly bird. An expert diver and fisher.
After diving and fishing this prehistoric looking birds leaves the water and spreads it wings to dry.
Really a goofy looking bird. Fun to watch. They are shy. With a long lens you can enjoy their antics. Much like the white faced Ibis, and from a distance the cormorant just looks like another black bird. A closer look reveals colorful eyes and face.
