This bird is called Lú cì in Chinese and in English it is Cormorant. Like dog for the hunters or just for our human’s life. This bird also have the loyalty for the fishmen and they are part of the business. Early morning when the fishermen go out fishing with the birds, first they put one little necklace ring on the bird’s neck in case they try to eat the fish.
When they do a good job the fishermen give them some small fish as the reward. And after the day’s fishing is enough for the fishermen’s family then they unlock the necklace ring and let the birds free and relax.
So for the fisherman this bird is like the business partner as well as the family member.
