The Anhinga Trail is a birding hotspot in the Everglades National Park. A short boardwalk leads out from a parking lot near the beginning to the road leading to Flamingo, Florida. Despite being crowded with tourists, birders and nonbirders alike, the Anhinga Trail birds are remarkably tame--so tame that Erika and I felt we were photographing birds in a zoo.
The first two birds are rails, the Common Moorhen (top) and the Purple Gallinule, (middle). Both rails lack a duck's webbed toes. The bird below is the trail's namesake, the Anhinga.
