All About Birds: Cormorant (22 Pics)

#16 Indian Cormorant

The smallest of the family. Body length - 0.63 m, weight - 800 g. The coloring of the back and wings is bronze-brown, the belly is black. The skin around the throat is green or dark yellow.

#17 The gait of cormorants is quite stable due to the larger area of contact of the webbed foot with the ground surface. This allows the cormorants to keep their bodies almost vertical.

#18 Due to this feature, as well as the elongated neck, cormorants can almost always provide themselves with food (because they see farther and better than many competing species).
