I find it interesting to see the Cormorants flying. The frequency of their wings are just amazing. I have seen several Cormorants, but I have found one more beautiful than the others. I love the colors of this nice Red-Legged Cormorant.

Wikipedia says that the bird is quite rare to uncommon, but you can find it on the cost of Peru and Chile and in Argentina. It is non-colonial unlike most seabirds. Its conservation status is Near Threatened.

I found this Red-Legged Cormorant outside the little village of Matarani on the coast of South-Peru.
