Birdorable 192: Horned Guan

Cute Birdorable Horned Guan

The Horned Guan, the 192th bird in our Birdorable Bonanza, is a large turkey-like bird with remarkable plumage and a striking red head-horn. The species lives in mountainous forests of Mexico and Guatemala at high elevation. The endangered Horned Guan is a target bird for many birdwatchers traveling within their range. Because of where it lives it's often hard for people to get to see it. In fact in can be quite an ordeal - Birdhick even calls it a death march.

Until the 31st of July we'll be adding a new bird every day as part of our Birdorable Bonanza until we reach the 200th at the end of this month. Here's a preview of tomorrow's bird:
