Hurricanes and wildlife - beamed into the farm a saw a critter that I am very familiar with down here but don't recall in my decades in TOO.

The only logical thing I can guess - besides he's eating my fish - is that he's blown way outa his how range.

I'm assuming it's a fairly rare sighting but regardless it's first of it's species on the farm.

They are not very smart - this one thought it was a beaver.

Did it say 'hello' to your little friend?

This from Univ of FL: The best way to tell if a bird in question is a cormorant or anhinga is to use their beaks. Anhingas use their long, straight, pointed beak to spear their prey. Cormorants, on the other hand, use their hooked bills to grab their prey. Both species hunt their prey by submerging themselves underwater.J
