Opisthocomus hoazin


Near Nauta, Peru - on the Marañón River, near the Confluence with the Amazon and Ucayali Rivers. Second sighting of Hoatzin (pronounced watson). AKA the stink bird. (Because of aromatic compounds in the leaves they consume and the bacterial fermentation Hoatzins use, the bird has a disagreeable, manure-like odor.) Iricahua Creek, Peru
