The imperial shag, also called the blue-eyed shag, (Phalacrocorax atriceps) is a black and white cormorant native to many subantarctic islands, the Antarctic Peninsula and southern South America.
Great Cormorants (Phalacrocorax carbo) live in archipelagos and coastal areas. Cormorants are skilled divers and live exclusively from fishing. Characteristically, they sit upright with outstretched wings to dry after they have dived for fish.
Cormorants are colonial nesters, using trees or cliffs.
