ABSTRACT
Anhinga, a genus of long, slim water birds found in wooded areas bordering freshwater rivers, swamps, and lakes in tropical and warm temperate regions. These birds, which resemble cormorants, are also called snakebirds and darters. They are about three feet (90 cm) long and have snakelike necks and heads, long beaks, and long tails. The birds feed mainly on fish, which they spear with their beaks, toss in the air, and swallow.
