Pied Shag 3

Pied Shag. (Phalacrocorax varius)

On my pulpit
A sermon to deliver
Now, pay attention



(Phalacrocorax varius)

This large shag is glossy black above and has black thighs and feet. The face from above the eye and the under parts is white. The bill is long and grey with pink below the bill. There is a patch of buff-yellow bare skin in front of the green eye which is surrounded by a blue eye-ring. The Pied Shag is silent except when nesting when the bird makes guttural croaks and gurgling sounds. ~ Bernard
