  1. Very nice, Chris. “Snake birds.” “Water turkeys.” Those were the names I knew for Anhingas when I was a boy.

    1. Thanks, David. The UTSWMC rookery was good to the Anhingas this year. Lots of successful broods. I like these strange birds for some reason. I enjoy watching them fly through the air as they swarm over the rookery. I have never seen them in action on/in the water, though. Hope to soon!
