Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A striking tinamou of the northern chaco desert and scrub. Very similar to Elegant Crested-Tinamou, but range does not overlap. Prefers dense scrub and understory, but can also be seen in openings and roadsides. Voice distinctive, and quite different from Elegant Crested-Tinamou: two whistles that are each flat in pitch, then rising sharply in pitch at the end - “Tooooo-wee! Tooo-wee!”
