Thanks, Andy. They are members of the cuckoo family and live in Central America.

I agree with Annalia's comment below - a bit of Archaeopteryx in there (I'm sure only in the visual sense, I'm aware that Archaeopteryx didn't have a strong enough strernum / keelbone to do much more than glide between trees!)!
If cuckoo family, are they also parasites of other birds' nests?

Good question, Andy. They are not parasitic, but they do have an unusual nesting behavior.
"The groove-billed ani lives in small groups of one to five breeding pairs. They defend a single territory and lay their eggs in one communal nest. All group members incubate the eggs and care for the young." - from the Wikipedia article listed above.

Unusual and very interesting! I am not a bird expert by any means but I don't think I have ever heard of birds that raise their youngs sort of like wolves do in a pack. These are truly interesting birds, Ronald.

One of those images where one can "see" that their very distant ancestors were dinosaurs!

Thank you very much, Annalia. They have a rather primitive look.
