This Everglades-based Anhinga (aquatic similar to cormorants; aka - snake bird) is using solar power to dry its feathers after an aquatic dive in pursuit of a fish dinner.
Definately looks like a Cormorant,which also lives on fish (at least here in Europe)

@Anthony Morgan Lambert: You'll notice the difference in the snake-like neck and the more sharply pointed beak.
They are fun to watch, but don't their 'arms' get tired? <grin>

Yes, that wing drying pose looks a lot like the cormorant.
