Montreal Biodome (4/4)

The last of the (good) Biodome photos, all taken in the tropical ecosystem:

Roseate Spoonbill. This species' range actually extends up into the gulf region of the United States.

The Sunbittern seems a plain and unassuming fellow...

...until he spreads his wings, that is! The flamboyant "eyespots" are used in courtship and to startle potential predators. We got to see that second use in action when a caiman (alligator-like reptile) got a little too close for the sunbittern's liking.
