  • This bird is nothing but a snake in the water

    The Anhinga is also known as “Snakebird” or “Water Turkey” because it usually swims with only its small head and slender neck above water, so there is a strong snake resemblance.

    There is also the habit of spreading its tail feathers, and these feathers somewhat resemble the tail feathers of a turkey.

    But, by any name this is an elegant water bird, with an S-shaped neck, that is found in South America from Uruguay and Southern Brazil to Ecuador, Colombia and Panama on North through Mexico to the Southeastern United States.
