This morning while checking my Prothonotary Warbler and Wood Duck boxes at Harwoods Mill, I ran across a pair of Anhinga. Initially the male took flight, and then the female emerged from some dense cover on a Bald Cypress. Since this is the first time this year that I've seen them together, I checked for a possible nest. Sure enough, low in the Bald Cypress was the nest. I moved away, and the male eventually took his turn on the nest. A nice addition to the Poquoson West SW block of the VA Breeding Bird Atlas! Photo is at the link.
