While riding my bicycle at the lake the other day I spotted this long line of birds. They are Anhingas, a waterbird that doesn't have oil on their wings so after each dive for food, they must extend their wings to dry. I think they are odd looking birds and have never seen so many in one place before.

Sorry I haven't posted for a few days. Had house guests and Monday was my birthday. I spent it at Epcot Center with my inherited daughter. Great fun. Our historic Presidential inauguration had me glued to the tv yesterday but I will now buckle down to work and post daily again.

I think they are pretty strange birds too. :-) They come sit in the dead tree behind our house, drying their wings out.
