  1. The bird looks like what is called “anhinga” in the US (atleast in the Florida Everglades) where we saw it. You take wonderful pictures and your blog is a visual feast. Thanks for keeping it coming!

      You are lucky to live in the midst of so many pretty, colourful birds. 🙂

      I was actually thinking of asking you to help me identify the couple of birds that I could not recognise. Do you know them?
