Wild Bird Wednesday: Little Pied Cormorant

These images were taken a few years ago down at Cleveland Point and somehow never edited or shared.

The Little Pied Cormorant is one of the most common of Australia's waterbirds, occurring on water bodies of almost any size. It is entirely black above and white below. The face is dusky and, in adult birds, the white of the underside extends to above the eye. Immature birds resemble the adults except there is no white above the eye.

I like their colouring! Little Pied Cormorants are quite different from the Common Cormorants we see on the shores of Lake Ontario.

Such a cute bird...and very different from our Double-crested Cormorants here in Southern California.

I love the detail you put into your blogs, with the information you give and the time you take finding the right shots. I enjoy our days out, and especially when we find birds to watch. xoxo
