GREAT CORMORANT (DANUBE DELTA)

The great cormorant (Phalacrocorax carbo), known as the great black cormorant across the Northern Hemisphere, the black cormorant in Australia, the large cormorant in India and the black shag further south in New Zealand, is a widespread member of the cormorant family of seabirds. The genus name is Latinised Ancient Greek, from φαλακρός (phalakros, "bald") and κόραξ (korax, "raven"), and carbo is Latin for "charcoal".

It breeds in much of the Old World and the Atlantic coast of North America.

Hello Marius,
I have never seen this species in the wild, we have the Double-crested here in Ohio. A nice inflight capture displaying plenty of detail.The exposure on its dark plumage is perfect and your clean BG is a real bonus
