The African Jacana (Actophilornis africana) is a jacana. The jacanas are a group of waders in the family Jacanidae, which are identifiable by their huge feet and claws which enable them to walk on floating vegetation in shallow lakes, their preferred habitat. They are found worldwide within the tropical zone. For the origin and pronunciation of the name, see jacana. Taken from Wikipedia.
