Hoatzin (3)

[Opisthocomus hoazin]

(whilst the Hoatzin is undoubtedly an attractive looking bird it seems to have little intelligence - couple that with its unusual eating habits and smell, and
the fact that it's rather noisy with hoarse calls that include groans, croaks, hisses and grunts, and you certainly end up with a rather unique species)
