Hoatzin (Opisthocomus hoazin) Hoatzin is a very peculiar, large, prehistoric-appearing bird of Amazonian rivers and lakes. An arboreal cow: feeds on leaves, which are digested in a specialized crop and foregut. Nest is a stick platform over water. Wings of nestlings have claws(lost later in life); drop into the water when threatened, then use the claws to climb back to nest...
As Mr. Spock would say, "fascinating".

Don't know what kind of bird it is, but is is diving for fish.

Thanks, Steph, the scene gave me a shiver. I hope it was some kind of trick, but it looked real to me.

I am not at all knowledgeable about such things, but why do Eagles not see children as prey?
