CommentIn New Zealand it is called the Pied Shag but her it is the Great Pied Cormorant. I was fortunate to see many of these in the pristine environment of Zealandia in Wellington NZ recently. I was happy with the position of the bird and the the feather, eye and overall detail. The bright colour on the face and eye suggests it is breeding. Although this looks like a nest I could not see any sign of eggs or young when I was there.
