The Little Black Cormorant commonly is very sociable like that and appear to use group formation chasing of fish. Generally more sociable than other local species.

Hi All.

A few months ago (after Christmas, I think) I went fishing down at lake Gininnderra.  While walking to our fishing spot, a very LARGE flock of cormorants/darters (too long ago to remember) flew into the lake nearby.  There must have been at least 50 of them flying around and diving.  Any ideas why there might have been such a large flock?
