Anhingas, locally known as "snake birds" are often referred to as comorants, by our northern friends. It would be very unusual to see a comorant in Florida. These birds spend a lot of time under water looking for food, sometimes just their neck and head are visible making them look like a snake. After diving for fist they will often be seen drying their wings in the sun.
A turkey vulture in Myakka River State Park in Sarasota, Florida. The park is most known for its alligators, but has a huge population of vultures, though most are black vultures. I'v used this shot on birthday cards along with a line like "a little birdie told me it was your birthday and he was meeting you for lunch". I am known for a weird sense of humor.
This group of birds took off as I crept up to take a close up. The ibis, mascot of the University of Miami, is a common bird throughout southern Florida.
