Neotropic Cormorant (Phalacrocorax brasilianus) is a large (61 cm) waterbird with a long body and proportionally long, snake-like neck. They range from the tip of South America to the southern border of the U.S. In New Mexico, it can be found at Elephant Butte and Caballo Lakes and Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge, and occasionally farther north along the Rio Grande. They are always found by water, where they eat fish.
