      1. Well that was quick, only seconds after uploading and identifying the title was already set :) No worries, I'll leave it as is. I do want to highlight that this bird is extremely rare and threatened. Posted 8 years ago

        2. Ps. fun thing multiuser:) Posted 8 years ago
  2. Wow... very nice capture and background!
    You're right you won't forget a bird like this one after seeing.
    What is the orange colour in the background?
    Posted 8 years ago
    1. It is basically fuzzy sand, that turned orange due to post processing intentionally. Posted 8 years ago
  3. Amazing, and this is @BestZoo? I gotta look then. Been there a few years ago, in the era before JungleDragon. Posted 8 years ago
    1. I like that zoo, although I do think some cages are a bit small for the animals. I particularly like their big cats and their rare birds. Posted 8 years ago
      1. I was last there some six years ago, I can't even remember their big cats and rare birds. It was all the kind of obvious stuff by then. At least in my memory, but since half a year I notice other stuff too:) Posted 8 years ago

The Trinidad Piping Guan is a bird in the chachalaca, guan and curassow family Cracidae.

This species is found only in Trinidad; it is close to extinction. This is a medium-sized cracid, 60 cm in length, and similar in general appearance to turkeys, with thin necks and small heads. They are forest birds, and the nest is built in a tree. Three large white eggs are laid, the female alone incubating. This arboreal species feeds on fruit and berries.

''Pipile pipile'' is mainly.. more
