From my archives (vacation in Panama)

The Wattled Jacana (Jacana jacana hypomelaena) is a wader which is a resident breeder from western Panama and Trinidad south through most of South America east of the Andes.

There are six races, with the nominate J. j. jacana being the most widespread. Several of the other subspecies are similar, but J. j. hypomelaena of western Panama and northern Colombia has all the chestnut plumage replaced by black, and J. j. scapularis of western Ecuador has some black feathers on its chestnut shoulders, and white outer primary feathers.
