Off I Go: A Little Pied Cormorant

Off I Go

Off I Go

Off I go, thinks this Little Pied Cormorant, moments before take-off.

Into the wide world…

These little birds fascinate me. They swim low in the water, and can dive and swim with enviable ease and efficiency, often re-appearing quite some distance away.

In the local swimming baths near where we live, water birds are a common and delightful sight. One of the most frequently-seen birds is the Little Pied Cormorant.

Their method of feeding — diving for aquatic animals– necessitates their habit of spreading out their wings to dry.

These small shags sometimes flock with their slightly larger relatives, the Little Black Cormorants.

Interesting characters!
