Cormorant’s Deep Sea Dive POV

Some researchers mounted a camera on an imperial cormorant’s back to be able to observe the animal and the diving from its point of view. The cormorant made a 150-second and 45-meter deep dive.

I wonder if the researchers evaluated/modelled the increased drag co-efficient effect of the camera on the bird's hydrodynamics to evaluate if it affected dive depth or mobility underwater.

PROBABLY FUCKING NOT
