Anhinga Pair

My neighbors keep an eye out for wildlife in the water behind our homes.  They saw this pair of Anhinga in the tree on the same limb with the pair of Yellow-Crowned Night Heron, which were also still on their nest on the limb.  Anhinga are also known as water turkey and snakebird.  When they swim in the water with just their long neck sticking out, they look like a snake ready to strike.  

Their eye color is so striking!

The male is on the left and female on the right.
