The Northern Jacana is a tall lean-looking marsh bird that is native to Mexico, Central America and to the Caribbean islands. It is similar to a rail, as it has long legs with very long toes, which gives it the ability to walk on the surface of the water, from one plant to the next. It has been seen in North America and is a recognized vagrant. It is a native bird seen in Cuba.
