|Amazon Kingfishers Chloroceryle amazona hunt from perches. These are |
large kingfishers, up to 30cm long. This is a male.
|Unlike the tiger-herons, Great Egrets Egretta (or Ardea) alba - or perhaps a complex of closely related species - can be found throughout the world. They are always a delight, even in remote places where rarer birds are also on offer.|
|Limpkins Aramus guarauna are always exciting to see, as the sole member of their family. They live on |
big water snails, and gained largely unrecognised exposure by providing the call of the
Hippogriph in the Harry Potter movies.

|Colombian Red Howler Monkey male Alouatta seniculus; their pulsing roar, like a great wind,|
is one of the sounds of the Amazon for me.
