    Default Request for photo

    I had fly over my property today one very large BLACK all under bird with a long bill which I ID'd as being yellow .
    I'm guessing a Great Cormorant. However, after checking the aussie bird images, there are no photos of "flying overhead" Great Cormorants.
    Does anyone out there have a photo I can compare with my sighting today please.

    The bird I observed was ALL BLACK under and roughly the length of a Brahminy Kite and the wing span about 3/4 of a meter.
    Wings were not unlike black falcon in shape and size as shown in Pizzey + Knight's field guide.
    Bloody hell .. it's hard isn't it ID'ing birds. But I love it.

    Don't have a photo but your ID sounds about right. Try an image search on a search engine. Might come up with something.
