Local officials released recently a photograph of more than 1,000 cormorants overwintering at the Xiamen Horticulture Expo Garden.


The migratory birds typically head south in October and begin their spring migration in March.


Cormorants feast on local fish such as tilapia and can eat prey up to double their weight.


Local ornithologist said that cormorants also play a powerful role in protecting local water conditions.
