The Hoatzin. Native to the Amazon. Unique among birds in that it's born with finger-like claws on the top of each wing, which drop off by the time they reach adulthood. Young birds use the claws to climb among the branches until they are strong enough to fly. Taxonomic classification is hotly debated.Greg Baldwin
