DARTER (SNAKE) BIRD

Description

The darters or snakebirds are mainly tropical waterbirds in the family Anhingidae having a single genus Anhinga. It refers to their long thin neck, which has a snake-like appearance when they swim with their bodies submerged, or when mated pairs twist it during their bonding displays. It is sometimes called "water turkey" in the southern United States for little clearly apparent reason; though the anhinga is quite unrelated to the wild turkey, they are both large, blackish birds with long tails that are sometimes hunted for food.
