“The Jacana is a wading bird; a genus of grallatores. They are very light birds; and the wide surface over which their toes extend enables them the more easily to procure their food, consisting of worms, small fishes, and insects, by walking on the leaves of aquatic plants which float on the water. Various species of the jacana are spread over the tropical regions."—(Charles Leonard-Stuart, 1911)
