A smart looking bird Carole. So small and dainty someone might think it a duck rather than a cormorant until it did the "cormorant thing" spreading out to dry. Nice pics.

Wonderful photos of the black.white Cormorant. The Cormorant in Europe are just black. I love the contrast of the bird.
Best regards, Synnöve

Wow, that one is superb, and this one I have not heard before, thanks Carole.

Love these pics. This little guy is looking a bit wild and woolly in the last shot. Is it as windy up your way as it is here? We're a bit over it.
Cheers,
Ros.

I'm glad you're enjoying the little pied cormorant shots everyone who's commented here, and to Ros: yes it is windy here today, tonight; not nice outdoors during the day at all. Well it is August month, traditional for the windy month isn't it just.

Joe said...

How nice to see a Cormorant that isn't all dark, like our local variety!
Beautiful images, Carole!

Ah! He looks all cold and wet with his feathers a bit ruffled.

Nice.

I love Little Pied Cormorants. The more bird watching I do, the more I am amused at the antics of certain birds!
