|This is an oriental anhinga (Anhinga melanogaster) also|
known as an African darter or snakebird. They're great fishermen and abound near lakes, rivers, streams, and swamps. Despite their proclivity for water, their feathers aren't waterproof like a duck's. Consequently, they hang them out to dry in the sun after a dip.
