Home Alone! Never seen a water bird nest in such an open space. Wonder how the chicks were brought up with predators all around. This dead coconut tree was close to the bank of a lake. There were no other trees around. The nearest tree was probably around 50 feet from it. There were total 3 chicks and they were being fed by their parent!<br />

The Indian Cormorant or Indian Shag is a member of the cormorant family. It is found mainly along the inland waters of the Indian Subcontinent but extending west to Sind and east to Thailand and Cambodia. It is a gregarious species that can be easily distinguished from the similar sized Little Cormorant by its blue eye, small head with a sloping forehead and a long narrow bill ending in a hooked tip.
