Wattled Curassow (Female)

Wattled Curassow (Female)
The wattled curassow (Crax globulosa) is a endangered member of the family Cracidae, the curassows, guans, and chachalacas. It is found in remote rainforests in the western Amazon Basin in South America. It has been found from the western and southwestern Amazon Basin of Brazil west to the Andes foothills of southeastern Colombia, eastern Ecuador and Peru, and northern Bolivia. Its area of occurrence is essentially delimited by the Caquetá-Japurá, Solimões, Amazon and Madeira Rivers. It eats mostly plant matter, supplemented by some small (typically invertebrate) animals. Couples presumably form for years, often essentially for life, as in other curassows; a change of partners may occur occasionally, and were males are frequently hunted (their loud calls make them easy to stalk) survivors may pair up with more than one female. The wattled curassow is rarely found in the wild anymore, due to unsustainable hunting and habitat destruction. Endangered species. Taken at Sylvan Heights Bird Park. Cropped only; otherwise untouched.
