Pictures of a Bank cormorant (Phalacrocorax neglectus) on a rock on Dyer Island. The Bank cormorant is endangered and threatened with extinction.Bank Cormorants (Phalacrocorax neglectus)are endemic on the Atlantic side of the southern Cape province. They are a bit smaller than Cape Cormorants and live on the islands off the coast. They build their nests on top of large boulders on the islands. Bank Cormorants dive in the shallow water and feed on fish, gobies, invertebrates and small lobsters. The increasing number of South-African Fur Seals ousts the cormorants of which there are only small stocks left.
