Our guide tells us they bring back wet vegetation, adding it to the nest to cool it down.  It also has some good stuff to eat like fish and snails.

The Jabiru is the tallest flying bird in South and Central America. Come join us in 2021 to photograph this nest and other Jabiru sightings in the Pantanal of Brazil.
