stinkbird has a superpower

Hoatzins, an amazon species also called stinkbirds, have a lot in common with other birds: they have feathers, wings, and a beak. But they also have . . . a hidden superpower! It’s not their smell, their beautiful feathers, or even their raucous song. One proud stinkbird papa would love to tell you more about it– if only his adorable (and clueless) chick will stop interrupting!
