Northern Jacana

These pictures were taken on February 19th, 2010 at Choke Canyon State Park, Texas. This bird is rarely seen in Texas, but is very unique. Although the pictures don't show it, they have very long toes and can walk across lilly pads. In Jamaica, they are know as the Jesus bird as they appear to be able to walk on water.
