Great Tinamou

Great Tinamou, Tinamus major, La Selva Biological Station, Saripiqui, Costa Rica. (10 26' N, 83 59' W, See OTS page.)This bird was very tame and walked right past me on a trail, seemingly oblivious to my presence. It was calling quite close to the dorms at La Selva, and it was one of the many loud calls that woke me up that morning.


I have this placed on the Flickr map only approximately.
