It has been a while since we featured animal species that we found in our wanderings.
After a thorough search on the black beauty we saw resting on one of the pier post in Manly, we finally came to feature it.
The seabird, covered with shiny black feather and dotted with bits of white spots, is the Little Black Cormorant. Its lustrous feather coat is impressive and beautiful, making it stood out with the rest of the seabirds.
These species of birds are found throughout Australia mostly found in freshwater everglades. However, they also seek refuge in areas where water is abundant such as coastal shores. They feed on fish and other aquatic creatures like insects by diving to the water and catching its prey through its webbed-feet.
Enjoy our photos of it and be captivated by its black beauty!
