Anhinga anhinga - Everglades

Anhinga (Anhinga anhinga) Everglades National Park, FLA, 2000. This species, also known as a snake bird (because of the shape of its neck), is common in the Everglades. It is often seen drying its wings, as in this photo. I’ve spent many hours watching these birds spear fish with their bills and then struggle to actually eat the fish.
