Wildlife Wednesday - Little Pied Cormorant

The Little Pied Cormorant (Phalacrocorax melanoleucos) is a cute little bird. They feed by diving underwater for fish and crustaceans, yet they aren't truly waterproof, so they need to dry their feathers. They do this by holding their wings out, which to me is the customary cormorant pose!

Sometimes they feed in flocks, but mostly they're seen alone or in small groups with each bird having it's own space to dry.

I love the expression in this picture
