Sunning Herself, Female Anhinga

Sunning Herself, Female Anhinga

This is a female Anhinga. As diving birds they have no natural oil on their feathers. No oil helps with buoyancy. It also means they get very wet and heavy. Here she is drying her feathers.

Females have soft tan neck feathers. Almost looking like fur.
