Phalacrocorax harrisi

(Rothschild, 1898)


Steve Rosenberg The Flightless Cormorant, Phalacrocorax harrisi, is unique in that it is the only cormorant that has lost the ability to fly. It is a skillful hunter, using its strong legs and webbed feet to propel it through the water. Check out the new eBook Dive Galapagos available on most tablets and smart phones. #scuba, #Galapagos
