Temporal variation in the diet of Black Curassows
(Crax alector, Cracidae).
During our censuses, at least one pair of curassow
was present at Limbo (yet the pair was extremely wary, which is suggestive of continued hunting pressure), and at least two groups of wood-quail were heard regularly.
The present record and other records done by local fishermen indicates that a small population of Great Curassow
lives in the isolated forest patches of the Sontecomapan area despite the pressures on the species (Morales & Villa 1998) and the habitat.
We put the pieces on a wooden rack high over the fire to smoke next to a smorgasbord of peacock bass, curassow
In RBSAT, jaguar's diet is mainly collared peccary, withe-tailed deer and white-nosed coati; and puma prey consists mainly on withe-tailed deer, rabbits and great curassow
(Hernandez-Saint Martin in revision); activity of jaguars was significantly related with activity of their principal prey species, but all these relationships were negative (Table 3).
34) A variety of species, including geese, bald eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus), red-tail hawks (Buteo jamainensis), macaws, and a curassow
(Crax alberti), have been affected, and many diagnoses of stenosis are thought to be related to intubation.
I raised my 12 gauge and fired out of pure instinct, but I somehow still managed to hit the rear curassow
hen dead center.
Crax rubra--A flight feather from a female was photographed in Canon del Tigre on 2 January 2004 and a male was heard calling at Los Troncones on 14 June 2006.
