Cormorants

There are two types of cormorants native to Cuba. The most abundant and widespread is the Double-crested Cormorant, which can be found throughout the North American continent, in freshwater and in seawater, along the coasts and inland.

The Neotropic Cormorant, is found along the southeast areas of the USA, Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean Islands

Cormorants are excellent at catching fish and is their main diet. These birds have long serrated bills with the shape of a hook at the end, great for catching and holding their prey. These birds are also excellent swimmers with strong stubby legs. The cormorant has the ability to submerge its body into the water where all that is seen is its head.
