  1. snakebird

    A snakebird, also known as Anhinga or darter, is a water bird from the warmer parts of North America, Central and South America, and Australia. It got its name due to its long snake-like neck. These birds are great swimmers and known for their diving ability with which they hunt for fish and amphibians. They are often seen standing with their wings spread out to dry after being in the water. Their feathers, unlike those of other water birds, do not fully repel water, enabling them to control their buoyancy.
