  Your remark that Anhingas do not have veins in their wings may be true.
It was March or April of 1975 when Tom Lodge and I were given the lecture
By Oscar T. Owre, but there is no question that he asserted that the
PRIMARY reason for wing spreading in Anhingas was heat gain. His argument
was quite persuasive(as always carefully thought out and presented). It is
a shame that he did not publish it.
