The anhinga is a swamp bird that often spends time swimming with just its head and neck above the water giving it the nickname snakebird. When not swimming, it spends much of its time standing with its wings spread wide, why does it stand like this?

Answer To dry its feathers

The anhinga is a bird that doesn't have waterproof wings so it needs to dry its wings after being underwater.
