Everglades National Park General: 80 reviews and 114 photos

Fondest memory: This funny looking bird is called an anhinga. There are lots of these in the park. There's even a trail somewhere named after them. This one in the pic is a female. You can tell by the color of its neck. Males have a black neck. These birds dive into the water and swim under the water's surface in search of fish. I watched this on several occasions and it was very interesting. In my travelogue of birds there's a couple of pics of an anhinga after it speared a fish. These birds are often seen perched with their wings spread to dry off. When flying they look headless which gives them a comical appearance. :-)
