The anhinga employs the lazy bird's way of feeding its chick. It just allows the chick to stick its head down the throat to the crop, where it finds dinner. You'd think it could at least regurgitate it for the chick.
I apologize for the intervening branch and low res. It was the best I could do under the circumstances.

I like how you apologize for photos I'd be thrilled to pieces with. smile

Sweet the coming on
Of grateful evening mild; then silent night
With this her solemn bird and this fair moon,
And these the gems of heaven, her starry train.
--John Milton
