Smaller than the Double-crested Cormorant by 6in, Neotropics are also slender in built. Often see on inland freshwater lakes and sheltered coastal waters in Texas, New Mexico, & Arizona.
Neotropics occasionally dive on prey, mostly fish and crustaceans, from the air or a perch.
VOICE Nesting bird gives pig-like croaks and low, squabbling noises
- Unlike other cormorants, the Neotropic Cormorant can often be seen perching on wires.
- The northern populations are often called Mexican or Olivaceous Cormorants, and many authors treat these as a separate species, P. olivaceus.
- Those who say the entire population is a single species treat the northern birds as a subspecies Phalacrocorax brasilianus mexicanus and the southern birds as subspecies P. b. brasilianus.
- A group of cormorants has many collective nouns, including a “flight”, “gulp”, “rookery”, “sunning”, and “swim” of cormorants.
