Re: Help can you ID this bird please

If you saw this bird in Norway, I would be surprised if it was a double-crested cormorant as I believe that this is a North American bird and so unlikely to be found in Norway. See http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/double-crested_cormorant/id for reference.

My take would that it is a Shag (Phalacrocorax aristotellis), probably a late juvenile.
