Masked Finfoot

Heliopais personatus

Conservation status: Endangered
Size: 50 cm
Not to be mistaken for a duck, the Masked Finfoot is a bizarre tropical bird that lives in mangroves, forest swamps and river systems in tropical Asia. Its brightly-coloured beak and reptilian-like feet make for a unique sight. You can find this reclusive bird floating around in the swampy forests of Bangladesh, Cambodia and Northern Myanmar. To imagine the sound this bird makes, blow some bubbles into water loudly.
