Description

The Hoatzin is a large, beautiful bird whose habitat is in low trees in tropical rainforests. They are herbavores. Males and females are similar with a large crest and blue non feathered area around the eyes. I took this photo while in a canoe in the Amazon jungle near the Sacha Lodge.
