Hi Chian,
a good detailed portrait. This bird is a New Zealand native. It is a male spotted shag - a type of cormorant, or parekareka to the Maori. I posted a photo of a juvenile spotted shag on this site a few days ago. Cheers, Neil

amazing cormorant, definitely not heron, TFS Ori

你照的真好 謝謝 晚安

Antipodean is correct on the ID.
