Abstract
    We present a new method of measuring the food intake in cormorants based on stomach temperature recordings. Stomach temperature loggers were deployed both in captive and in free-living birds. We examine the accuracy of this method and compare it with the standard methods of evaluating food intake by pellet or stomach content analysis.
