Neotropic Cormorant

A bird of the tropical waterways of Central and South America, the Neotropic Cormorant reaches the upper limits of its range in Texas and occasionally, the Great Plains. Although it superficially resembles North America's other freshwater cormorant, the Double-crested Cormorant, the Neotropic Cormorant stands apart in various aspects of behavior, as well as range.

Long body and long neck.
Medium-sized bill is blunt or hooked at tip.
Purplish black plumage.
Throat and base of bill yellowish.

Immature Description
Mostly brownish, especially on neck and breast. Bill mostly dull brown.

Hello Brenda,
Another fine image of this curious Cormorant. From the looks of the bulge in his throat, I'd say he just swallowed a rather sizable fish or two. You managed to obtain very good detail and beautiful natural coloration. Seems to have a little grumpy look on his face..don't you think:(
Great work!!

Hi Brenda,

Just love this image, so funny and the title makes it all the funnier, well exposed under the harsh available light, nice and sharp, delightful pose and good eye contact, this guy looks highly irate for some reason?, nevertheless a great effort here Brenda and very well done,
Best Regards,

Have a good weekend

Hello Brenda,
It is a very nice capture of this gorgeous bird difficult to shoot in the wild because she is very shy.
Excellent portrait with nice colors.

Gracias por tu comentyario Brenda.
Tui toma es simpática y original por el ángulo de disparo empleado.
Bien centrado el foco en la cabeza y naturalidad en los colores.
Saludos: J. Ignasi.
