CormorantbirdCormorant A large aquatic bird which is really linked to the gannet and the pelican and is found mainly in warmer and tropical locations, mostly on the sea but at times on inland waters .

Cormorants have a body length of two to 3 ft. long , with heavy, generally dark plumage and their eyes are green. The feet are webbed, the bill is long with the upper mandible terminally hooked.

Being excellent swimmers, Cormorants chase fish underwater. In the Orient they are used by fisherman who collar the leashed birds to prevent them from swallowing the catch .

The Double crested Cormorant of the Atlantic Coast and Bryant's Cormorant in the Pacific are common forms. The glossy black European Cormorant is widely distributed in the northern hemisphere. A South American Cormorant is the guano .
