The Greater Potoo of Brazil. Just got back from the Pantanal, wow what a photo trip; went for jaguars and had 9 sightings - - but even better was the 125 different birds that we found (( big surprise from my perspective ))
This is a female Great Potoo sitting on her egg. She has been using the same perch for the last 5 years so she is a little easier to find. She simply lays the egg against a flat part of the tree. Camouflage is superb - - you are very challenged to find her if just walking by. The male is just as well suited for becoming a branch.
Many more pics to come ..
