Are they the same as Darters? Look the same to me. They call them snakebirds here as they swim with their body under the water and look like a watersnake when they're fishing

Yes, also pianobird... confusing when species have multiple names.

Yes, also called darters. They manage to swallow amazingly large fish for their head/neck size, like snakes...they are fun to watch fishing. Now the anhingas in Florida are in more intense breeding colors, as are lots of other wading birds. I am unfortunately not able to find time to go photograph them, very frustrating!!

Those are beautiful birds Lester, Are those seasonal in UK? I don't see posting more on this kin of bird.

Thanks Peter.

They are around all the time but easier to see at some times of year.

They were very common feeding in fields aparantly untll modern farming practices drove their numbers down. Now the best place to see them is in wet areas inland and on the coast. They are ground nesters on little muddy islands etc.
