Smooth-billed Ani

Crotophaga Ani


A flock of anis waking up. They are quite common in the Venezuelan Andes.


Mérida, Venezuela


These birds can be found nearby cattles. They don't fear humans, live and move in groups, and can be extremely noisy. This species is called "El pijul" in Venezuelan folklore. I saw many nest in bamboo trees.
