Anhinga novaehollandiae, Australasian Darter. Large, slim waterbird found in Australia, Indonesia, and Papua New Guinea. Common around waterways, where it perches on trees and branches above the water, often holding its wings out to dry. Typical habitat is freshwater or brackish wetlands more than 0.5 m deep with fallen trees or logs and vegetated banks; less commonly in inland saltwater areas. It eats a wide variety of fish such as Australian smelt, bony bream and queensland mouth breeder.
