Flightless Cormorant – Signed Fine Art Print


Information about the Flightless Cormorant:

The Flightless Cormorant is a member of the Phalacrocoracidae family - which includes some forty species of cormorant and shags. It is a highly unusual bird, as through the process of evolution over many thousands of the years the animal has lost the ability to fly, and instead can only walk and swim. Like other cormorants, it has webbed feet and is an excellent swimmer. This species is the largest extant member of the family being 35–40 inches (89–100 centimeters) in length and weighing 5-6 pounds (2.5–5.0 kilograms. The bird is found on only two of the Galapagos Islands (Fernandina and Isabela) There are only about 1,500 individuals in existence today making it one of the most rare birds on the planet. Very extensive conversation projects are working towards preserving this unique species.
