Neotropic (Olivaceous) cormorant
Phalacrocorax brasilianus
The neotropic cormorant is a resident here in Tlacotalpan, inhabitaing the many lagoons and marshes that are found here. The NT cormorant can often be seen perched on fence posts with its wings outspread. I have observed that the neotropic cormorants are colonial nesters and will share the trees of the nesting rookery with great egrets and cattle egrets. Here are some photos taken recently of the Neotropic cormorant.

For those of you who have been following my weblog of the spring hawk watch here in Tlacotalpan http://veracruzhawkwatch.blogspot.com
I will conduct a full day count today (for the past 5 days we have had rain, high winds, thunderstorms, none of these conditions being condusive to raptor migrations) I am expecting to see a faily good 'push' of raptors today.
Good birding all.
