also known as cormorants.
Pancake rocks, Punakaiki,

joining Eileen for Saturday's Critters


  1. Here(UK) Shags and Cormorants area different species. look quite similar. Good shot

    1. You may be right Margaret, I always thought they were two different birds until I was recently told they were one and the same so I think I'll do a check for my own satisfaction.

  2. The same or different they are a nice subject for the photo. I really like the layered rock formation.

  3. Hello, Great shot! Even though the shag and cormorant look alike they are different birds. I googled what the difference is, the cormorant is larger in size and they have a heaver thicker beak. I like your photo of the shag and the neat rock formation they are standing on. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

  4. I didn't realize the difference, until now!!

  5. I agree, whatever they are, they make a great photo.
