Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Secretive chickenlike bird that walks on the ground inside forest. Very plump; looks tailless. A large tinamou but smaller than similar Great. If seen well, look for distinctive pale spotting on wings along with white throat and lower belly. Fairly common and widespread in lowland Amazonian forest, occasionally up into the foothills. Far more often heard than seen: listen for its haunting song, a pair of low hoots, the second note rising.
