|White-crested Guan Penelope
|Amazonia National Park,
A Brazilian endemic, the White-crested Guan is considered as a "Near Threatened" species. Although it seemed reasonably abundant in the Amazonia National Park, it is confined to a fairly small area south of the Amazon River between the lower Tapajós and the lower Madeira rivers.
It is a handsome bird with rich chestnut brown underparts, a blackish face with a red wattle and a white crest.
