We have been seeing and hearing this bird since day one. It is big, noisy and travels in groups of two or three. They seem to be chasing each other all the time. It might be playing, it might be serious business.
They are common residents in the North East of Costa Rica. You cannot mistake them for another bird with their color pattern and cool crest feathers. Also, they make a whole array of funny and widely different sounds, so they are relatively easy to track. However, they usually do partially hide behind leaves and they do not sit still for long. Until today we have not been able to capture them in pictures.
