Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A very shy and hard to see tinamou, endemic to Brazil. If views allow, note the heavily barred back and vent, rufous belly and throat, yellow legs, dark gray breast, and a pale well-marked eyebrow. Found in forest, scrub, and savanna. The voice is a series of mournful deep hoots: “woo wuh wuh wuh.”
