Readily seen about harbours and estuaries associated with cities or towns. Unlike most other shag species, the pied shag is reasonably confiding, allowing close approach.

I like that there is a visible eye on each Shag. A well balanced image, Zig.

Excellent composition with this quartet! I also like that each pair has one looking ahead and one with turned head. Clever!
