Adult cormoran , with the Espalmador lighthouse at the end
This cormoran is very common around the island, and also at the rest of the balearics. The adults are totaly black. They just come to the sea shore to sleep and to dry theirself.

They fly on a very low height. They are excellent swimmers. They can dive a lot of time to get their food, fishes. During many years the number of these cormorans went down. Now is recovering the number of cormorans all over the balearics.
