Very good picture, Monica.
Well composed, good POV, nice colours and good exposure.
It's not easy to exposure a B/W bird, but you manage very well. Maybe a little more sharpening.
Great work.

Hi Monica, this is a type of Cormorant. In NZ we call out native Cormorants "Shags". These birds are excellent at catching fish under water and swallowing them whole.
This is your best photo I think - so far. The white is exposed very well - and he is nice and sharp. Very good job! :)

Great captured!
Excellent composition,sharp details ,very nice colour.

Very good photo, Monika. Our cormorants are all black, so, this is interresting to see. There are 40 referenced species of cormorants in the world. This is more than probably the "New Zealand King Shag". Perfect pose, proud attitude. Nice feathers details and colors. Well done.
