Black Cormorants

Posted Tuesday 8th June 2010 at 01:40 by Francis Duggan
They can be seen on inland lake or waterway
Or in any coastal estuary or bay
Fishing people do not see them as a friend
To like them they do not even pretend
'Tis said that fishing stocks they do deplete
With commercial fishers they regularly compete
But black cormorants have to eat fish for to live
Though for that the fishers them will not forgive
In Australia in numbers black cormorants abound
In islands they build their nests of sticks on bushes and on trees or on the ground
Three to five eggs the female bird does lay
At any time of year those expert on them say
Familiar to coastal waterways or dams and lakes of the countryside
And bigger than their familiar cousins pied.
