Tree Anhingas

On two recent afternoons several Anhingas gathered in this Cypress Tree on one of the rookery islands.

There were at least five Anhinga nests on the island this spring,  and probably more that I couldn’t see based on the activity. The two lower birds in the next image may be young from one of those nests.

A Little Blue Heron and two juvenile Great Blue Herons can also be seen in the wider view. Those two GBH had not fledged yet but sure were curious about the flights of other birds.
