Black Shag on Rock

Known in the Northern Hemisphere as the Great Cormorant this large black sea bird was spotted just of the coast of the Coromandel in New Zealand. Sadly, due to my limited time and equipment this was as close as I could photograph him with my 200mm zoom lens. As you can see the bird is drying his wings. The Maori name for the bird is a Kawau.
