Hoatzin (Opisthocomus hoazin) Hoatzin is a very peculiar, large, prehistoric-appearing bird of Amazonian rivers and lakes. An arboreal cow: feeds on leaves, which are digested in a specialized crop and foregut. Nest is a stick platform over water. Wings of nestlings have claws(lost later in life); drop into the water when threatened, then use the claws to climb back to nest...
As Mr. Spock would say, "fascinating".

Thanks, Steph, the scene gave me a shiver. I hope it was some kind of trick, but it looked real to me.

I am not at all knowledgeable about such things, but why do Eagles not see children as prey?
