Bird of the Day – Day 31- The Shag

We went to Raglan which is an all day drive from Auckland and back last Sunday. While in Raglan I walked over a bridge and a Shag turned up quite close. It flies and dives for fish and it swims on the surface and often dives for food. 

Here are 3 photos of this bird. 

#1 Shag about to land on water

Here it is descending on water, the air brakes are on.

#2 Full stop

Wings up, flippers down. Right on the spot. Fish cant be far.

The Shag must be able to see if there is food under the water,
