This female Anhinga could have been the ‘Totem’ bird. Took the picture from a fair distance, so it’s not exceptional… but I could identify her.
According to my Birds of North America its proper name is ‘Anhinga Anhinga’, which is a little strange since all the other birds have strings of unpronounceable names…
I almost wrote ‘peckerwood’. Guess that cocktail of otc drugs is kicking in.
We’ve never had squirrels here, as there are no fit trees, but look! Squirrel! In the neighbor’s yard, tho. No matter. Saw a squirrel; can’t take it back.
