What is it?

What is it?

I can't identify this bird. It was tall, and was perching in a tree over a swamp near the Kennedy Space Center parking lot. Very pronounced ruff of brown feathers around neck. About the size of a large heron.

I can't really see the bird's Bill in the photograph, but maybe you remember it well. The tail suggests an anhinga. Compare it with a double crested Cormorant and you will find your answer.
