Say hello to the Anhinga. Anhingas are water birds known as darters. They spear their prey with that pointy beak. They also, like a cormorant, do not have waterproof feathers (that's why they sit like this, drying their feathers). By not having waterproof feathers, like ducks, they can swim below the surface of the water. This is why they are sometimes called the snake bird. This one was hanging out at the Indian County Lagoon Wetlands in Vero Beach, Florida.
