Great Potoo


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


We will be doing this trip again next year, if you think you might be interested more information is available here:

other sizes: small medium large original auto
