Hoatzin


Pronounced, "Watson".

Hoatzins are super bizarro prehistoric looking birds from the Amazon jungle. They still have vestigial hooked claws on their wings, which the young birds use to climb back into trees (since they usually perch in bushes above jungle swamps full of predators).   

I saw a tree laden with these when I was in Ecuador, and it was amazing/hilarious.

This is my second attempt at watercolors and colored pencils. Still need new colored pencils. haha.
