Hoatzin, Opisthocomus hoazin, also known as the stinkbird, or Canje pheasant, is a species of tropical bird found in swamps, riparian forests, and mangroves of the Amazon and the Orinoco Delta in South America.eating leaves and fruit, and has an unusual digestive system with an enlarged crop used for fermentation of vegetable matter, in a manner broadly analogous to the digestive system of mammalian ruminants. The alternative name of "stinkbird" is derived from the bird's foul odour, which is caused by the fermentation of food in its digestive system.[3] Wikipedia; Hoatzins feed on swamp plants, grinding foliage in a greatly enlarged crop, not the gizzard, as in other birds. It is notable for having chicks that possess claws on two of their wing digits. ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny; Lago Soledad, Lago Soledad Amazon Rainforest Wildlife Lodge, La Piedras Rainforest, Río Piedras, Amazon, primary forest, oxbow lake, Peru, South America, Hoatzin17546czssz.jpg
