Thanks so much all of you. I took some more pics of this bird this afternoon. He is such a poser and the light on his stump is very nice in the afternoon when I walk Mango. She is such a good birder dog...she just sits and waits quietly for mom to take those pics.

I think there should be a mission for organisms with the same genus and species name like this one: Anhinga anhinga. (I don't really think there needs to be such a mission, but it's a fun idea).

Congrats Claire, what a beautiful photo of this Ahinga! We've chosen it as spotting of the day!

"While swimming, an Ahinga's head may be above the surface with its body below. Observers only see the long neck and head. This has resulted in the nickname Snakebird."
