PIED CORMORANT IN FLIGHT & ON WATER , FROM MV EYE SPY, MORETON BAY, BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA

   We observed this cormorant flying and then landing on the water not far from the Humpback Whales.  We can ID this cormorant as a Pied Cormorant by its long, grey, hooked bill; orange eye-patch; blue eye-ring (if you look closely at the second photo you can see the blue color); white neck and underparts and black upperparts. 
   The Pied Cormorant is a new species to our Photographic Life List, which now stands at 713.
