Big Bite!

Big Bite!

Reed Cormorant   Microcarbo africanus

 This little fellow is the only small inland cormorant in the Southern African region. He can grow to some 55cm and can weigh up to 500gm.

 However small he may be, he certainly makes up for it in his meal size! He does not have to stand back for even those champion fishermen, the Kingfishers!

This afternoon image was captured on the Chobe River, near Kasane, northern Botswana, Southern Africa.
