Elegant Pied Cormorant, Posing…

10 Aug
Little Black Cormorant

Little? Pied Cormorant

The bird in this photo looks large, but according to my references it is a Little Pied Cormorant. Well, it’s certainly pied, and it’s a Cormorant. But, little?

If experts are to be believed,  the Little Pied Cormorants and Little Black Cormorants are the only representatives of their species that inhabit the local river and wetlands.

Whatever its name, it’s still an elegant and eye-catching addition to the local scene.

    He looks like he belongs on the prow of a ship as the figurehead. The ship will be called The Cormorant of course.

    Elegant is right and the size took me by surprise

      Thanks, Odie. It seems such a large bird…

        Just checking my information leaflet, it seems that there is a ‘Pied Cormorant’, a large species, that very rarely visits here. My guess is that this may one of the occasions. 🙂
