Cormorant’s deep sea dive, video


This video is called Cormorant‘s Deep Sea Dive Caught on Camera.

From the Wildlife Conservation Society:

Deep Dive

July 31, 2012

Fitted with a tiny camera on its back, an imperial cormorant dove to the ocean floor to pursue a meal. Although conservationists know these seabirds seek underwater snacks, they never anticipated the depths of their fishing feats, as captured in this video. The WCS team that worked with the National Research Council of Argentina to track the “super-bird” has studied cormorant feeding behavior in the Patagonian Sea for the past decade.
