Introducing The Shag

birdorable European Shag

Our 154th Birdorable bird and the answer to the last Spot the Birdorable is the European Shag. This cute cormorant can be found across Europe, northern Africa and south Asia. Shags are deep divers. Using depth gauges, they have been shown to dive as deep as nearly 150 feet.

What birdwatcher doesn't enjoy Shags? Especially this cute little Shag in this original design from Birdorable. A cheeky design for fun-loving birders everywhere.

Cormorants say oink, really! I'm buying pigs at the market and then going to the sea to get a few cormorants, I think they would have missed their family in the barn. Cormorants MUST be related to pigs.
