Practice Flights, Anhinga

Practice Flights, Anhinga

She did a good job on this one of her first flights.

I watched her jump from the Cypress and fly straight to a tree branch over my head. perhaps about 30 yards (27 meters).

None of these birds have room for error, Anhinga have double trouble.

They dive underwater to catch fish, that’s their main food source. Besides flying they need to be very good underwater. She hasn’t tried that one yet.

Most birds need to fly over the Alligators, Anhinga also need to swim around them. That takes skill…and a lot of luck.
