The Cape cormorant or Cape shag (Phalacrocorax capensis) is a seabird endemic to the southwestern coasts of Africa. They breed in large aggregations on offshore islands and the mainland, with nests constructed from seaweed, stems and sticks. Both parents feed the chick, regurgitating food (fish) directly into its open mouth. Photographed in Bettys Bay, South Africa.
