    Sadly not 100% in focus but it was a long way from me.
    I haven't seen many photos of this beautiful bird, the Spanish name is Pavo Hediendo (Stinking Turkey) which is why it isn't hunted.

    Cool! It kinda looks like it was cobbled together from spare parts.

    You were over by the Amazon? They are cool birds. I have yet to see one in person.

    Nice bird! I think the focus is forgivable, since it's a rare bird for most of your viewers.

    Thank you, it was only just in my range, sadly they seem to like being high up in the trees.
