When Even A Bad Cell Phone Snap Would Do


The AJC online is so pitifully multimedia-deficient that it failed to run even a (very good) reporter’s grainy cell phone photo with this story about a Georgia bird:

Anhingas normally are found on the coast and in the coastal-plain region of Georgia. However, they are showing up now in the Piedmont, including suburban Atlanta. Naturalists at the Newman Wetlands Center in Clayton County said anhingas have been spotted during all seasons of the year in swamps and reservoirs managed by the county’s water authority. Several anhingas also have been seen in Henry County wetlands. No one knows for sure, though, why the birds seem to be spreading inland.

Full naked story here. (I will remove this post when/if any picture/video presentation of this bird is made available.)
