The guans are a number of bird genera which make up the largest group in the family Cracidae. They are found mainly in northernSouth America, southern Central America, and a few adjacent Caribbean islands. There is also the peculiar Horned Guan (Oreophasis derbianus) which is not a true guan, but a very distinct and ancient cracid with no close living relatives (Pereira et al. 2002).

Hello Raimundo ,
An interesting bird and one I have never seen before. It appears to be fairly large and I really like it's tiny bright red wattle. I agree with Luciano that the focus is a bit soft, probably due to your slow (1/13) shutter speed.

Bonjour Raimundo,
La profondeur de champ ne me paraît pas suffisante pour apprécier pleinement la finesse des détails.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Raimundo,

The small branches are helping to frame the bird. The point of view is showing the details of the Guan. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.
