Many, many years ago, when I was living in central Australia a new building went up that had a shiny corrugated iron roof. One night a significant number of cormorants (sp?) tried to land on the new roof. It did not end well for some of them. I guess, without knowing, that other cormorants have made the similar (and more understandable) error with toxic tailings ponds over the years and across Australia.

While driving on Palmer Street in (Lower) Garran yesterday afternoon a black bird was standing in the middle of road.  On getting closer it turned out to be a Little Black Cormorant.  When we returned 30 minutes later it had gone.
