Martin, I find your description of the Little Pied Cormorant as "like a little fluffy puppy" being completely different from mine. What I see is a "scruffy puny punk rocker with attitude" this compared with the "Holier than Thou" bearing of the Pied Cormorant which makes them easy to differentiate, but then again I'm probably on more potent medication. I'll maybe try some of your pills as living next to the sea we do have heaps of the LPCs and I get a bit paranoid with all these punk rockers looking at me.

For what it is worth I find metaphors quite useful in distinguishing these species at a distance.
The Little Pied Cormorant looks fluffy and compact, like a puppy.
The Pied Cormorant looks sleek and long, like a penguin.
I'll get back on my pills straight away!
