Had a really nice day at Viera Wetlands last week. Great weather, lots of birds and wonderful company. This breeding plumage Anhinga was right next to the road on the north Click Pond. Other names for this species are Snake Bird and Water Turkey.

Michelle in NY, Pat Ulrich, Janice L, and 24 other people added this photo to their favorites.
