Commenters agree that this bird is a Hoatzin (thanks guys!), it's painted in watercolor on hot press watercolor paper.

Hoatzin, the thumbed bird! Quetzals are hard to confuse with other birds if you see them, they are small with LONG tails and bright neon green and red

Wonderful painting! The attention to detail on the bird makes it easily identifiable, along with the realistic foliage surrounding it. The painting technique made me initially think of it as a photograph before I found out it the attention to detail was made from paint strokes.

It seems that this bird is very closely resembling a hoatzin: lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/yhst-1… .
