A cormorant is a type of aquatic bird that belongs to the family Phalacrocoracidae.

There are about 40 species of cormorants and shags, which are found in coastal and inland waters around the world.

Cormorants have dark feathers, long and hooked bills, webbed feet, and short wings.

They are excellent divers and fish-eaters, catching their prey by plunging from the surface.

They often spread their wings to dry them after diving, as their feathers are not fully waterproof.

Cormorants nest in colonies on trees, cliffs, or islets.

Some of the most common species of cormorants are the great cormorant, the double-crested cormorant, and the little black cormorant.

Cormorants have been used by humans for fishing in some parts of the world, such as China and Japan.

Cormorants are also the inspiration for a free display type family developed by Christian Thalmann.

A cormorant is a type of water bird that has a long, thin, hooked bill, a long neck, and stiff tail feathers.

It is mostly black in color, but some subspecies have white patches on the neck or breast.

Cormorants have webbed feet that help them swim and dive underwater to catch fish.

They often stand with their wings spread out to dry after fishing.

Some additional facts are:
  • Cormorants are found in many parts of the world, except for the central Pacific islands.
    They nest in colonies on trees, cliffs, or islets near the shore.
  • Cormorants can vary in size and weight, depending on the subspecies.
    The largest cormorant is the great cormorant, which can measure up to 100 cm (39 in) in length and weigh up to 5 kg (11 lb).
    The smallest cormorant is the pygmy cormorant, which can be as little as 45 cm (18 in) in length and weigh only 340 g (12 oz).
  • Cormorants have a distinctive appearance that has been compared to a sea raven or a prehistoric reptile.
    Their name comes from the Latin word corvus marinus, which means "sea raven".
