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.

Possibly an Anhinga NEW

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.

but I'd sure like to know what it is, too. Last Spring I saw green herons for the first time; but it turns out they weren't migratory. I just hadn't seen one before. LOL!
