Order Suliformes Family Anhingidae
Anhingas (also called "Darters" in Africa and Asia) must spend time standing in the sun, drying their feathers when these become waterlogged. Like cormorants, their feathers are not water-proof, allowing them to eliminate air from their plumage and reduce their buoyancy.
