That's a common name in Texas for the Double-breasted Cormorant.

They are federally protected, but a ranch owner might obtain a federal nuisance hunting permit if they are "depradating" his fish.

However, I don't think this bird would taste very good on the Thanksgiving table based on its diet.

Nice shot. I think you will get some argument from the SE Gulf states. They will tell you that the Anhinga is the Water Turkey!

Thanks Chief. My research suggests both, depending on the state.

Nice shot. We used to shoot them when we were kids but wouldn't eat them.

Thanks Ken. When Louisianans don't eat them, you know they must taste bad.

We used to call them mud turkeys.
