ANIMAL FACTS - Cormorants and Darters

Being underwater hunters, the Darter's feathers are permeable to water to allow for decreased buoyancy so they can sink to catch their prey.

Crikey - More Animal Facts!

These waterbirds are found throughout much of Australia, even at inland waterways during times of flood. These birds are very intelligent and in some overseas countries they are trained by fisherman to capture fish in place of using nets.
