Working class cormorants

Mt Maunganui-

Despite our distance from Australia, we have quite a lot of sea-birds in common. Some were brought here, some fly high on air currents and jaunt back and forth every year. Some – who knows? They are here and they are there.

These two cormorants are virtually identical to the ones we saw in Melbourne, doing pretty much the same things in both places – hanging out on a hunk of wood jutting into the water. But Mt Maunganui, near Tauranga, is one of NZ’s major ports. So unlike their Aussie cousins, who indulged themselves in a public recreation area, these guys inhabit a working port. I am sure they have much more responsibility – working cormorants.
