    Description
    Cormorants or Shags There are five types - the Spotted, Pied, Little Pied, Little Black and White Throated Little Black. These birds spend a large proportion of their day fishing or drying off. They saturate their feathers when fishing making them less buoyant then spend a lot of the day drying themselves off again. The shags nest in dry overhanging cliffs and generally have large nests as their chicks grow to almost adult size within six weeks of hatching. The spotted shag changes colour color in Spring. It develops a bottle green around its face to attract a mate.
