The cormorant (Phalacrocorax carbo)

… is a short-distance and nocturnal migrant

The cormorant measures 77 – 94 cm in length, and has a wing span of 121 – 149 cm. It breeds in colonies on rocky cliffs by the sea, or in trees by lakes and coasts. It primarily feeds on fish. As its feathers are not water-repellent, it can often be seen with wings spread out, drying its plumage. Its daily fish intake is between about 300 and 500 grams. Cormorants have been regularly breeding in the Rhine Delta, in Vorarlberg, since 2001. Pressured by shermen, officially approved „regulation measures” have resulted in the numbers of breeding pairs being restricted to 30, maximum 50.
