Our lakes do not cease to amaze me. You know from my previous posts that ibis, wood stork, different types of herons, and even a bird called the turkey vulture visit there.
It would seem... well, who else could there be? Yet I passed by the lakes once again and saw this strange creature.
It seems that this is a miniature copy of the dragon from the Game of Thrones. Imagine, it sat just like this, with raised wings. Either she tried to scare me, or she dried up her wings.
I began to crouch closer to it. Instead of flying, it swam away, but it did it in a weird way. Like this.
I was going to publish it as a nameless bird in the hope that someone will tell me its real name. Yet, since I uploaded short footage to YouTube, some Good Samaritan told me what kind of bird it was. In English, it is called "Anhinga" or “the snake bird.”
