August 12 – BOTD – Anhinga

Here is my entry for Granny Shot It’s  Bird of the Day (BOTD) challenge.

Anhinga sunning to dry out those feathers.

One of our favorite resident birds in Florida. They are often referred to a snake birds because they will dive for their food and reappear with that long neck coast along the water. To learn more about these awesome feathered friends, check them out on Wikipedia.

Also another great read is from Audubon about how climate change is changing the range of these birds. Rare bird sightings maybe the new norm.

    • They are very similar but a different bird. Their beaks are long & sharp. The cormorants beak curves at the end. They behave similar & have to dry their wings like the cormorants. You often see them together in the same habitat here in Florida.
