Andean Cock-of-the-Rock

Rupicola peruviana

Description:

We're lucky enough to have a lek at the reserve and Joao Krajewski was brave enough to get down there early to take this photo. Sometimes over twenty males will spend an hour or two squabbling, quite a sight. The photo of the female feeding her chick is simply mind-blowing.

Habitat:

In the Cloud Forest. at about 1800m.

Brilliant fun to watch too! Noisy as anything. If you get up for the morning show (two hours walk in the dark) then you'll be rewarded with a right hoo-hah!
