    Well seen! Took me some time to realize that the cormorant and the branch it’s sitting are almost the only objects in the scene that aren’t reflections.

    Thanks, Reginald. Actually the bird is an Anhinga.

    I’ve only seen one Anhinga in my life, so I assumed it was a cormorant

    which is common in my area.

    Thanks,

    Hi Reginald. The pond I used to live on frequently had cormorants or anhingas on it. It was almost impossible to tell the difference unless you could get a side view and see that the cormorant’s beak is hooked. The anhings’s isn’t. Outside of that they’re almost identical.

    By the way, that poor bird has something stuck in her beak. I shot another picture of her this morning. I’m afraid there’s a fishing hook involved. Wish I could solve her problem, but there’s no way.Anhinga
