Anhinga Bird Picture

The Anhinga –  definitely in my top 10 favorite birds. The Anhinga has a long pointed bill and beautiful black / grey feathers with some white stripes. Since the Anhinga has poorly oil glands and its feathers aren’t as waterproof as other water birds are, it will perch with its wings open to dry its feathers and warm its body. The Anhinga’s diet includes small fish, shrimp, amphibians, crayfish and young alligators and snakes.
