Information about the Hoatzin:
The Hoatzin - also called the stinkbird or Canje Pheasant - is tropical bird native to the swamps, forests and mangroves of the Amazon and Orinoco Delta in South America. It is the only extant member of the family Opisthocomidae. It is about 26 inches long (65 cm) not including a long head and neck. It is a very vocal bird, with a variety of hoarse calls, including groans, croaks, hisses and grunts. These calls are often associated with body movements, such as wing spreading. Calls are used to maintain contact between individuals in groups, warn of threats and intruders and by chicks begging for food. The Hoatzin feeds on leaves, fruits and flowers. Despite habitat loss and predation by humans on the eggs of the birds, it is not considered endangered. And it's adaptability to changes to it's environment will help it survive into the future.
