Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Plump chickenlike bird found on the ground inside humid lowland forests from Honduras to Panama, up to around 1,600 m. Look for rufous underparts that contrast with black cheek and throat. Uncommon and infrequently seen. Pairs or small groups walk on the forest floor. Listen for its rollicking “who-whoop, who-whoop, who-whoop” song.
