[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Found the nest of sticks! Difficult to capture but got one pink lil one! Aren't they something!

When anhingas are in their breeding plumage they have a blue ring around their eyes. The female lays three to five light blue eggs. The nest is in a tree and it is made of sticks and lined with leaves. The chicks hatch in about a month.

Hello Brenda,
On some photographic sites is a photo of birds nests forbidden. There's a great chance of disturbing. I hope you didn't.
Beautiful photo in good sharpness and fine contrasting colours.
