  1. Wow! The Anhingas are new for me (very inetersting)and love that red-winged blackbird and super Glossy Ibis photograph. The yellow throat is similiar to an Australian bird with a completely different name.

    1. Thanks Russell! The Anhinga are very common here. That's funny how many birds I see in different countries that look similar but have different names!

  6. Lovely shots again Tammy. We actually have 2 wintering Glossy Ibis at Stodmarsh, Kent at the moment although your shots of it puts ours to shame.

    1. Thanks Alan! I was in my car when I took the photo; the bird came out in the open a few times but I missed it everytime! He was a fast moving little fellow!
