a personal challenge
Here(UK) Shags and Cormorants area different species. look quite similar. Good shot
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.
The same or different they are a nice subject for the photo. I really like the layered rock formation.
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!
What a great scene!
I didn't realize the difference, until now!!
I agree, whatever they are, they make a great photo.
Endemic to New Zealand and the most threatened gull species on the planet.
