Subject: IBET 2 Anhinga flyovers at the Greene Vaklley hawkwatch on Tuesday
At approx. 11:30 AM CDT, Karen said look up!, so Dick Young and I looked
up - and the 3 of us observed 2 effortlessly soaring Anhingas, directly
above us on the hill. Their yellow, daggerlike bills and long tails, narrow at
the base, wide and wedge like at the tip, were easily discernable with
binocs.
Our huge field of view from the hilltop, plus our focus and attention on
soaring birds, has led to several sightings of this species by multiple
observers over the past few years.
