Rarely-seen terrestrial bird found in the high Andes of southern Peru and adjacent border regions of Bolivia. No other tinamou has such a long, curved bill; also note the stout yellow legs and profuse white markings on back and breast. Inhabits wet, grassy areas adjacent to scrub and woodland. Usually only detected by voice; song is a single piercing whistle given at well-spaced intervals.
