You can tell an Anhinga from a Cormorant by remembering that the beak of an Anhinga forms the letter “A,” and the Cormorant’s beak forms a little “C” at the tip. Both birds are large black tropical birds (35″ long), and can both be spotted in Florida.
Often called the snake-bird for its long neck, you can spot this bird swimming underwater. This Anhinga typically takes time to dry off after swimming. This fearless black bird takes a moment to preen its feathers. Keep an eye out for one when you visit Florida.
