Anhinga (Anhinga anhinga)
Anhingas are a common enough sight in the Keys, but Anhinga Trail in the Everglades necessarily has a HUGE number of these marsh birds. This particular specimen, a female, preened for a bit next to the board walk before diving into the water to hunt for fish.
The Anhinga is sometimes called the “snakebird.” The reason for this is that it’s actually a snake, disguised as a bird. But it’s not fooling anybody.
