We have taken thousands of photographs of the Cormorant and we just have had to find the right one to display on this website. It is black and getting the right action and character for this bird has been a quest. Here are its wings displayed and they are very beautiful.
There are a lot of Cormorants in Thailand and one can find them just anywhere. lakes, ponds, swamps and just about anywhere as long as the water is still and stable. We have even rescued one Cormorant trapped in a very fine fishnet and that was going to drown the bird had we not seen it. The funny thing is, after we cut the fine net from the body of the Cormorant, it gave me a series of bites. They were not that painful but enough to let the bird go. I did not though, I had to be sure that there were no other things stick on its body, hooks or whatever; then we released the bird. When we found the bird, it was with another Cormorant trying desperately to rescue its friend or maybe mate.
