Australian Darter

While working near Emigrant Creek Dam I espied this Darter spreading its wings. At first I thought it was a cormorant but a quick check of the coloured stripe on the face showed it to be otherwise. Much work has been carried out by the local water authority to improve the native vegetation around the edge of Emigrant Creek Dam but in the dam the most common fish is the Coy Carp. I suppose that this darter enjoys the Carp as much as it enjoys any native fish.
