Anhinga Picture


The anhinga, sometimes called snakebird, darter, American darter, or water turkey, is a water bird of the warmer parts of the Americas. The word anhinga comes from the Brazilian Tupi language and means devil bird or snake bird. It is a dark-plumaged piscivore with a very long neck and often swims with only the neck above water. The anhinga is placed in the darter family. Like other darters, the anhinga hunts by spearing fishes and other small prey using its sharp, slender beak.
