The Anhinga (Anhinga anhinga) 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. Anhinga is not able to waterproof its feathers. Therefor, it will perch for long periods with its wings spread to allow the drying process, as do cormorants. This photo is taken on Kiawah Island, SC.
