Whitebreasted Cormorant

Sorry for the lousy pictures but maybe one day I will win the lottery and be able to afford a decent lens. LOL!!

Large birds found throughout SA by all marine and inland waters.
Mainly eats fish but also frogs and snails.

In warmer regions, breed throughout the year with 2-4 eggs in a clutch.
Info: Robert’s Birds of Southern Africa

We have had cormorants on the dam just nearby but the moment I stop the car they are gone! Diane
