World Bird Wednesday - Little Pied Cormorant


Hi there – bit of a brief post today.
This is a Little Pied Cormorant – it was showing rather nicely on the rocks at Lorne during our trip away.  Rain, work, a sore back and trips to the circus has rather cut down my birding time over the last few weeks, so I’ll post these rather than something a little more current.
You can see that there is a Willie Wagtail trying to get in on the act in the background of the pictures.  Clearly he does not know about the limitations of depth of field and telephoto lenses!
You can find more birds from around the world at World Bird Wednesday.
You can find the latest post to my other blog by clicking the Paying Ready Attention image on the RHS of the screen.  These birds also show up in that blog - so if you want to read more about what I had to say about them, click here.
Enjoy the birds

  1. Great looking cormorant! The ones we have are much darker. I like the white front and the yellow bill.

  7. What a cool looking Cormorant Stewart.

    I guess its a lot smaller than our Cormorant here in the UK (Great Cormorant.

    If you see my post regarding the Little terns I was suprised to notice how much smaller than the Sandwich Terns they are, when they are on their own you kind of taske the size for granted.... it was a bit of an eye opener for me

    Lovely bird mate

  11. The Little pied is easily the best looking cormorant ever, I would be glad to trade a couple of our Double crested ones for a few of yours. Excellent shots Stewart, hope the circus was fun!

  19. Nice shots. It's not a Cormorant that I've come across before, so it's nice to see.
