Maybe A Little Too Wet, Anhinga

Maybe A Little Too Wet, Anhinga

Anhinga (snake bird) fish underwater. Like a Cormorant they have no oils in their feathers  to help them swim.

However, drying off here can be a problem…predators love them.

I think this young lady was in the water a little too long. She was drenched and unable to fly. This log was best she could do.

Above is a good example of just how wet they can get.

A few good shakes and a some sun had her dry enough to get airborne and on higher ground.

  1. Beautiful bird! It probably dries often her wings. The first photo is so touching , the bird looks like she needs a hug 🙂
