|This picture was taken at Purbasthali(Chupi) in Burdwan district of the state West Bengal, India, 120 kms north from Kolkata. Purbasthali lies on the banks of a large oxbow lake created by the river Ganges.The Little Cormorant (Phalacrocorax niger) is a member of the Cormorant family of seabirds: Aptly named, the Little Cormorant is small in comparison with other cormorants, only 55 cm in length with an average mass of 442.5 g. Salim Ali describes the Little Cormorant as a "glistening black duck-like water bird with a longish stiff tail and slender compressed bill sharply hooked at the tail." It is a resident species in most of tropical south Asia, commonly found in Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Lao People's Democratic Republic, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Viet Nam; additionally, it is a vagrant species in Afghanistan. The estimated population was 280,000 - 350,000 in 2009. The Little Cormorant is not a migratory bird; it dwells year-round in trees near a water source. (Source: Wikipedia)|

really a timely taken photograph. the photograph has few negatives like silhouetting the real subject (bird) particularly on the face though difficult to control the lighting. nice work. tfs
