Black Shag 2

Black Shag NZ

Got a hankerin'
For a suitable mate
Are you the one for me?

Of the world's 36 species of shag 12 are found in New Zealand and 8 of these are endemic. Members of the shag family belong to three groups based on the colour of their feet: black, yellow or pink. The term shag seems to have come about in reference to the crest on the head of some species. ~ Bernard
