Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Large chickenlike bird widespread in the Andes from Venezuela to Bolivia. Found at higher elevations than most other guans; from the upper subtropics to the temperate zone. Rather dull brown overall with distinct frosty-white chevrons and streaks covering head and breast. Slightly warmer rufous on lower belly. Reddish legs. Sexes alike. Usually in pairs or small groups, often bustling about noisily in the middle to upper levels of trees but can also perch inconspicuously. Feeds on fruit.
