Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Large chickenlike bird with a long tail. Chocolate-brown overall with pinkish-red legs and silvery frosting on head and neck. Restricted to southern Ecuador and northwestern Peru, where it occurs in subtropical and temperate forest from around 2,000 to 3,000 m. Typically in pairs or small groups in the mid levels of forest. Replaces Andean Guan south of Cuenca and west of Jaén; also note subtle differences in patterning: Bearded has more extensive silver on brow and a streaked, not scaled, breast.
