Wild bird Photograph: Wattled Jacana

Updated: Oct 9, 2021

The Wattled Jacana (Jacana jacana) is common in just about any permanent and seasonally flooded freshwater wetlands. Highly polyandrous with females defending and breeding with 1-3+ males, which in turn each defend a small territory.

Some authors have considered the Wattled Jacana to be conspecific with the similar Northern Jacana with which it narrowly overlaps in Panama.
