i found out something really cool today
there’s a bird called the hoatzin that lives in south america that looks like this:
it looks really cool kinda like a feathered dragon??
but the coolest part about this bird is the juveniles!! the babies in this species have claws on their wings that help them climb until they’re old enough to fly, and by that time the claws disappear!!
you can see the tiny claws in this pic!! it’s so cool because birds are living dinosaurs and these little baby hoatzins look like baby raptors with their claws!!
idk i just had to post about this bc this is a rly cool birb that deserves more attention!!!
