Smooth Billed Ani (Crotophaga ani)
A Smooth Billed Ani I saw some months ago as the sun was setting and the place was becoming darker. Originally I was going to discard this image as it was almost completely dark but me being lazy as usual I postponed deleting my bad images; a month ago I started using Photoshop decided to try it on some bad images and was able to correct the exposure and also remove a bit of the noise and I think I'm happy with how it turned out. Also, my apologies there's no metadata even though I export photos with it it doesn't seem to be in any photos I edit on photoshop.
The smooth-billed ani is a large near passerine bird in the cuckoo family. It is a resident breeding species from southern Florida, the Bahamas, the Caribbean, parts of Central America, south to western Ecuador, Brazil, and northern Argentina.
