The Comb-crested Jacana (Irediparra gallinacea), also known as the Jesus Bird, Lotusbird or Lilytrotter, is the only species of jacana in the genus Irediparra. Like other jacana species, it is adapted to the floating vegetation of tropical freshwater wetlands. I really enjoyed watching them at Kakadu, as they walked across the lily pads.

This clip by Mike Grant is cool as it shows some baby jacanas hiding in the parent’s breast.
Watch them walk across the lily pads.
