Great Cormorant


In one of my previous posts, I had posted a pictue of Little cormorant; this one is a bigger cousin of the same and called Great Cormorant. The photographed bird is a Juvenile; once they grow up they acquire the glossy black colour and a yellow gular pouch. The black plumage is acquired after the age of 4 years. Like its little cousin, this bird too fishes by diving and swimming under water chasing fish. During courting, they engage in a cute little dance and is a great pleasure to watch.

As and when I get the opportunity I will post the photograph of a adult Cormorant.

  1. I always love watching diving birds. I just wish I could see the underwater chase, I bet that it's amazing.

  3. Hi, I love all your photographs. I live in the Channel Islands (UK / France) and am surprised how similar the birds are - I just wish we had such beautiful butterflies. I notice you haven't placed any new photos for ages...?
