Great Potoo

Brazil

www.texastargetbirds.com

This strange looking creature is the Great Potoo which was a very pleasant surprise during our visit to the Pantanal. As the name suggests, it is a relatively large bird. You might also guess it is a nocturnal bird that poses as a broken branch during the day while itís sleeping.

Nyctibius grandis
