Alernative name: Galapagos Cormorant
- Nannopterum harrisi
Up to 100 cm, a large cormorant. It is dark brown to black. The wings are reduced and look like ducks would look in heavy flight-feather moult.
No other cormorant is expected in the area, and the wings should clinch in case of doubt.
Galapagos Islands on the coasts of Fernandina and Isabela
They eat eels and other fish, octopus, and other underwater oily animals. The young may be fed until heavier than adult.
