Flocks of the great cormorant fly to Kuwait

Kuwait, The Gulf Observer: Flocks of the great cormorant fly to Kuwait in November and roam the country until February before departing in the direction of the Caspian Lake during the breeding season.

Mohammad Shah, the head of the team for monitoring birds of the Kuwait Environment Protection Society, told KUNA that people have been sighting huge flocks of the bird, boasting the dark-colored feathers, above some regions in Kuwait.

These birds spend a lot of time roaming Kuwait Bay but regularly fly to other spots namely the natural reserves, he said, noting that the bay is an incubating spot for many animals, birds and fish. He expressed his belief that some of these birds have been settling in the country due to abundant water and food.
