Artwork Description

“The turkey-sized Curassows can be found in wooded areas through most of tropical America, where they are the largest ground birds. Related to the guans and chachalacas, they are divided into 4 genera and 17 species. Curassows are less social than most galliform birds, and adults are usually solitary. They feed largely on fruit, supplemented with other plant matter and invertebrates. The Bare-faced Curassow (Crax fasciolata) occurs in eastern Brazil, Paraguay, eastern Bolivia and extreme northeast Argentina”.
