Grooovy Bird

This was the strangest looking blackbird I had ever seen hunkered down in the bushes. It had an exceptionally long tail and a large, curved beak. When I got close, I realized it was a Groove-Billed Ani, a bird that I had never seen. (Left click to enlarge)

The grooves in its upper mandible were remarkable. The two Anis stuck close by each other and disappeared in the dense bushes if you got too close. You never can tell what you will find at Peveto Bird Sanctuary. (Left click to enlarge)
