Here's an anhinga fishing this morning in the marsh pond.

You might notice however that the poor unfortunate bird has some type of unknown fiber wrapped around the lower portion of it's bill.
We have seen the bird try to scrape it against a wood post in an attempt to remove the substance, but so far no luck.
It is obviously still able to fish and eat which is good news.

Great action set Phil, shame about the string around the beak, hopefully it will get it off.

Thanks Flo!
Yes we have seen this anhinga around for about a week now and we hate seeing that junk stuck on his bill. I constantly think about a way to try to get it off him. We considered trying to net him but we could end up injuring him or worse yet breaking his neck. Or...it could really injure one of us. I would not want to get struck by that sharp bill and they can go for your eyes. I rarely see a GBH back down to any bird including eagles but I have seen a GBH back down from the much smaller anhinga. Even the GBH with it's formidable bill gives respect to the lightning fast, sharp bill of the anhinga.

Thanks Joe, and yes it is a shame. We keep hoping it will find a way to get this substance off it's bill.
