Dusky-legged Guan

penelope obscura


Large (27") and very loud bird that is easier to hear than see. A good dispersor of undigested seeds. Males & females the same.


Lives in higher forests or along streams. Usually moves in the trees but occasionally on the ground, eating fruit, flowers and buds.


I saw this pair just off a road with their chick but the little one got to cover before I could shoot it. (I know, that sounds horrible!)
