Hoatzin (2)

[Opisthocomus hoazin]

(within my associated 'travel section' write-up I mentioned that the Hoatzin is often referred to as the 'stinkbird' because of its foul odour that's caused
by the fermentation of food in its digestive system - it spends most of its time in bushes close to the water's edge where its main diet is leaves and fruit)
