How About an Antarctic Blue-Eyed Shag?

Get your mind out of the gutter if that’s where it was. I’m talking about avians here.

The other type of bird at Red Rocks Ridge was the Antarctic blue-eyed shag, a member of the cormorant family. Some of the shag nests I saw were in amongst the Adélie penguin nests.

    Love all the birds Jake. I’m currently identifying 3.5 million yr old bird bones at the Natural History Museum….what a learning curve for me! I know human bones, but birds…that’s a whole ‘nother thing!
