Bird Facts You Won’t Believe Are Actually True

Baby hoatzins have tiny claws on their wings

Native to the Amazon, hoatzin babies have tiny claws on their wings – as well as on their feet. Since their nests are in trees that frequently overhang water, it’s a safety feature for when predators try to eat the babies. Baby hoatzins can simply hop down into the water, then climb back up the tree when it’s safe, according to Audubon.
