Speckled Chachalaca

Several taxa here included as subspecies of the Speckled Chachalaca have been considered valid species instead; the Colombian Chachalaca in the inter-Andean valleys in Colombia, the Scaled Chachalaca in south-eastern Brazil, and the East Brazilian Chachalaca in eastern Brazil. The last of these has also been referred to as the Brazilian Chachalaca or the White-bellied Chachalaca, although the former arguably is problematic as numerous other chachalacas are found in Brazil, while the latter leads to easy confusion with the Central American Ortalis leucogastra. Alternatively, araucuan and squamata have been included as subspecies of the Little Chachalaca . All three, columbiana, araucuan and squamata, were originally described as valid species, but – without reason – changed to subspecies of O. guttata in the Peters' check-list. Nevertheless, they all have white scaling/spotting on the lower neck and chest, thus resembling the Amazonian nominate group , and most recent authorities continue to treat all as subsp

The Speckled Chachalaca (Ortalis guttata) is a species of bird in the Cracidae family. It is found in forests and woodlands in the western Amazon Basin, disjunctly in the inter-Andean valleys in Colombia, and the Atlantic forests in eastern Brazil. It is the only species of chachalaca with distinct white scaling/spotting on the lower neck and chest, but otherwise it resembles other chachalcas, it being vaguely pheasant-like (though far more arboreal and social), and with an overall brown plumage.

The Speckled Chachalaca is a species of bird in the Cracidae family. Physical Description These are large birds, similar to the appearance of a turkey. The smaller Chachalacas are found in open scrubby habitats while the larger Guans and Currasows are normally found in treetops. Many birds in this species are fairly long tailed, which may be an aide to navigating through the trees. They are generally dull in the color of their plumage. More
