Neotropic Cormorant
Phalacrocorax brasilianus
The Neotropic Cormorant (Phalacrocorax brasilianus) is a species of South and Central America which barely enters the United States, mainly in south Texas. The species sometimes wanders great distances and there are records in many states outside of Texas. It is proportionally longer-tailed but smaller overall than the Double-crested Cormorant, with which it is sometimes confused. The first three shots here were taken in southern Tamaulipas, Mexico, in December, 2004, with a Canon EOS 1D Mark II and EF 600mm F/4 L IS lens.
The shot at right shows a Neotropic Cormorant on West Galveston Island,Galveston Co., Texas, in September, 1999. The shot was taken with a Canon EOS 1N and EF 600mm F/4 L lens on Fuji Provia film.
The shot at right shows a Neotropic Cormorant at Laguna Atascosa N.W.R.,Cameron Co., Texas, in February, 1998. The image was taken with a CanonT-90 and Sigma 500mm F/4.4 lens on Fuji Provia film.
