PIC OF THE WEEK: 11/27/17 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2017 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Melbourne, FL • Viera Wetlands
Notes: This unique three foot long waterbird is created for fishing. It has been given numerous nicknames, such as Water Turkey, because its long tail feathers closely resemble those of the Wild Turkey. Other such names include: darter and snakebird, which relate to its long slender neck. Anhinga do not have external nostrils, so they must breathe solely through their mouth. As a result, they are often seen swimming along with their bodies completely submerged, with just their snake-like neck protruding above the water’s surface. They dive and spear their underwater prey with that sharp-pointed beak. Their range covers the warmer parts of the Americas, mostly along the coastal regions, but also populate well into the watery interior of northern and central South America. As with many southern birds in North America, their range is extending northward as our climate trends warmer and warmer each year. The females are easily identified by their tan colored head and neck. Both parents participate in raising there two to three chicks, which as they get older, can be quite aggressive as they compete for food while still in the nest. There were even confirmed Anhinga sightings here in the Richmond, Virginia area this year.
