Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small unobtrusive tinamou, which can be locally common in grasslands, savanna, and agricultural areas. Striking red bill and legs are its most notable features, otherwise largely gray with a brown back and scalloped vent. Best distinguished from the similar Tatapua Tinamou but has red legs. The song is a long, descending trill of “trii” notes that finishes with a low “truuu truuu truuu” which can be heard all day. Sometimes just the last notes are sung.
