Little Cormorant

Little Cormorant - Phalacrocorax niger 


Sri Lanka:  several places including Colombo:  2016:   February.


One of the first birds I saw in Sri Lanka.  It was fishing in the river/canal which bordered my hotel grounds.

Gave it a shake,

a pause for control, 

and then it's ready to swallow!

The other bird was part of a mixed nesting colony in trees at the lake in Kandy where there were Great Egrets, Indian Pond Herons, Little Egrets and Black-crowned Night Herons as well.
