POWERED BY MERLIN

Distinctive and striking tinamou, nearly endemic to Argentina, from northern Patagonia through the Monte desert region. Prefers open, rocky habitat. In the northern chaco replaced by similar Quebracho Crested-Tinamou. Often found by its three-part whistled song: a “twee-tyoo-too” similar to but less emphatic and more consistently pitched than Red-winged Tinamou.
