Great Cormorant
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.
