I think you are right. It doesn't look like a smooth-billed. But it is an ani....

Came across these 3 fellas our bush today and miles from the nearest farm? Their colours stuck out like a sore thumb!

Never seen a more awesome perch/background for a Cara Rob. Well done.

Beautiful portrait.
The blue feathers are totally awesome/so unique. Love the way the blue frames/juxtaposes the red in the eye.

Greater Ani, makes sense. Your bird is slim of build and has distinctive bright eyes that the other anis don't. Nice find!

I learned elsewhere that it is pronounced "awny". At least that is what I was told.
