Biodiversity challenge – Hoatzin

Hoatzin Matilda

Hoatzin Hilda
And her stinkbird mate
Survey their latest nestling,
Wrestling with the same
Old question:
Hoatzin. A name?
His suggestion,
No debate:
Matilda.

Down on the ground,
Rumours abound.
Usual refrain:
What are those things
On her new chick’s wings?
Bet she’s been up to her tricks
With that archaeopteryx
Again.
