Mr. And Mrs. Anhinga
Yesterday over at the marsh pond I saw this male and female anhinga in the classic wing drying pose. The male on the right is dressed in his typical all black attire, but also has the aqua blue/green eye ‘makeup’ which indicates breeding condition. Once they had their wings sufficiently dried, Mr. Anhinga decided it was time to leave with the lovely Mrs. following not far behind.
A bit later I saw another male perched nearby. He was also starting to get the breeding color around his eyes, but I didn’t see a mate so…he may still be single and looking!
