The Cormorant is a bird of almost universal distribution, and belongs to each of the four quarters of the globe. It is also accommodating in the situations it frequents, and makes itself equally at home on sea or land, both near the shore and farther from it, in barren and rocky places, as well as in those that are wooded, the neighbourhood of buildings, and the most lonely wilderness, rivers and lakes, fresh-water and salt. In Europe it occurs on the shores of Norway and Iceland, and then in the south is seen in the Black Sea and the Grecian Archipelago, as also on the Swiss and other lakes and rivers. In Asia, in Siberia, Russia, and the Icy Sea, the Caspian Sea, and India; in America, from Greenland and Hudson's Bay to Canada and the United States.
