Transcript of The Comorant
THE CORMORANT WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE? Cormorants are characterized by a vivid blue eye color and
an orange/yellow growth at the base of their beaks that becomes
particularly large and bright during the breeding season. They have
a white-breast, a black back and largely white cheeks and neck.
The bill is dark brown and the feet are pink
Blue-eyed shags feed mainly on fish and invertebrates, often forming dense "rafts" at sea of hundreds of birds that continuously dive down onto the shoals below looking for fish. By fishing in such large groups they help each other by panicking the fish into having nowhere to go except into the beak of the next bird. They are excellent divers with a recorded maximum dive of 400 feet. Once underwater they are able use their powerful webbed feet to propel themselves rapidly in search of food. WHAT DOES IT EAT?
