Friday Snapshot: The Hoatzin

Postcard Friday: Near Atalaya, somewhere in the Amazon, Peru


Since I find myself really missing the jungle in these weeks, I decided to dedicate another week to a photo of the Hoatzin. A prehistoric bird, they are amazing to look at. They are found in the Amazon and the Orinoco Delta. This bird makes the strangest clicking and hissing noises I’ve ever heard. A really incredible bird to observe in the wild.
