Yellow-knobbed Curassow

The Yellow-knobbed Curassow (Crax daubentoni) is a large species of bird found in forest and woodland in Colombia and Venezuela. It feeds mainly on the ground, but flies up into trees if threatened. Its most striking features are its crest, made of feathers that curl forward, and the fleshy yellow knob at the base of its bill. Females lack this fleshy yellow knob, but otherwise resemble the male in the plumage, being overall black with a white crissum. The adult is 84-92.5 cm (33–37 in) and weighs about 2–3 kg (4.4-6.6 lbs).
