Great Curassow - Crax rubra

From behind. And this shot seem to be rare. I found no photo or description on this tail on the internet. I don´t know what to make of it really.  :) This bird seem to be rather rare and living in forest on high elevation.

  14. Spennende fugl - tenk om vi hadde slike nærmere oss, men da hadde vi også et annet klima! Flott bildeserie!

I love comments so please write something. I usually responds to everyone on their own blogs. But nowadays I often find it impossible to comment on many blogs or on Google+. Often the word verifications is unreadable. And after three times I give up. Other times the systems seems to think I am a spammer. Lots of bloggers loose comments that way. :( So, if you don´t see me comment on your blog that is the reason.
