Anhinga in Trouble

IMG_0974

The other day at Paynes Prairie I watched this poor anhinga struggle for at least an hour as it tried to remove a mass of shredded line wrapped around its bill. Nothing seemed to work. I couldn’t tell if part of the debris had been swallowed, but his bill definitely wouldn’t open more than you can see in this photo.
