The little bird is asking "Who am I?" and I have no answer.

This was a very strikingly beautiful bird with its totally blue feathers, but I do not know its name.

I thought this small wading bird would be easy to identify, but alas, for me it was not.

This bird looks like an Ibis to me, but I can't identify it. Frustrating.

I thought this was a bustard of some sort or perhaps a guan. However, I have not been able to identify it. If anyone can help please do, I'd appreciate it.
