It was not long before the Anhinga slipped into the gently flowing Rio Iguazu to begin a hunt for a fish snack. These 3-ft. long birds, also known as Darters or Snakebirds, are very similar to Cormorants except for their narrower neck and pointed beak, instead of the hook at the end of a Cormorant's beak.
When swimming partially submerged, like this one, their long thin neck and beak give them their snake-like appearance. The catwalk provided an unusual chance to be so close to one of these birds as it occasionally completely submerged to glide just under the surface, like a fish, while searching for prey.
