  • Microcarbo melanoleucos
  • The Little Pied Cormorant is one of the most common of Australia’s waterbirds, occurring on water bodies of almost any size. It is entirely black above and white below. The face is dusky and, in adult birds, the white of the underside extends to above the eye. Immature birds resemble the adults except there is no white above the eye.
