American Anhinga

Well, if there were ever a crazy bird that looked like it got all the leftover parts from Creation Week, it would have to be the American Anhinga.


We spotted several anhingas hanging out around the lagoon in Hilton Head (6/15/12). At times you'll see them sitting by the water, spreading out their wings to dry, or flying overhead...



...or you may see them swimming around on the water....


...or even swimming mostly submerged, like a little submarine....



At any rate, we really enjoyed getting a closer view of these strange, Muppet-looking birds!

Hi there! Thanks for taking the time to comment - I love hearing from you. If you can help me out with identifying any of these mystery birds or correct any mistakes I've made in identifying the others, I would so appreciate it! Happy Birding!
