Guan Horned (oreophasis derbianus) near endemic – Mexico

The Horned Guan lives in montane forest at altitude up to 3,350 metres. It  makes a variety of sounds; this photo shows the voice box expanded producing a  low frequency booming uhmm, uh’mmm.  It was so exciting to see this rare and endangered species, certainly a special privilege.
