A male anhinga surverys the Hillsborough River At Tampa, Florida's Lettuce Lake Park for its next meal.
The anhinga or American darter (anhinga anhinga) can be found throughout the Americas from the southeastern United States to Argentina. Because it lacks the oils and types of feathers used to keep birds warm, they are restricted to the warmer climes. It is also called the black darter, water turkey, or snakebird.
The word anhinga comes from the Brazilian Tupi language, which means devil bird, an evil spirit of the woods
