ANIMAL FACTS - Cormorants and Darters
Birds like Flip the cormorant spend a lot of time swimming in the water and get their feathers waterlogged. This means that they have to sit with their wings outstretched to dry before they can fly properly again.
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.
