wee wild beasties

A visitor in the back alley. I have no real idea what kind of bird this is. While taking pictures and chatting the visitor starting squawking back at me and somewhere nearby there was a squawk in reply.
The poor thing seemed lost, perhaps ill. But such is the life of inner-city weelittlebeasties.

Given it's body structure and tail shape, I would say that it is a recently fledged Cormorant.

Or a very young starling which are also common city dwellers.
