Neotropic cormorants (and one cattle egret)


20070112-1028-IMG_7972

The neotropic cormorant or olivaceous cormorant (Phalacrocorax brasilianus, oliivimerimetso in Finnish) is a medium-sized cormorant found throughout the American tropics and subtropics, from the middle Rio Grande in the United States to South America, where it is called by the Indian name of “biguá”. It can be found both at coasts and on inland waters. This bird I photographed in the Buenos Aires Japanese Gardens in Argentina.

I will post every week “Thursday Twitters”, pictures of birds mainly from
Finland and Southern Africa, occasionally also taken elsewhere.
The source of the text is most likely Wikipedia or similar online article.
