Long-tailed Cormorants, also called Reed Cormorants (Microcarbo africanus) are a common resident of inland waters in Southern Africa. They eat mainly fish, but also take frogs and some insects and plants. This immature Reed cormorant was perching on a dead branch at the Lower Sabie Causeway in Kruger National Park.
