African Darter

(Anhinga rufa)

Is typically seen perched on a log or a rock in or near to water with its wings spread out to the sides. These birds are also referred to as snakebirds because of the appearance they take on when the swim with just their head and neck sticking out. Unlike many birds, the feathers of the African Darter are not waterproof, and the bird must dry its feathers before taking flight.
