Aburria jacutinga (Black-fronted piping guan)

Synonyms: Penelope jacutinga; Pipile jacutinga

Wikipedia Abstract

The black-fronted piping guan (Pipile jacutinga) is a bird in the chachalaca, guan and curassow family Cracidae. This species occurs in Atlantic Forests in south-eastern Brazil and adjacent Argentina and Paraguay. It has become quite rare in recent decades due to hunting and habitat destruction (BirdLife International 2004). No other piping guan is found in its range, though the Gray's piping guan (Pipile cumanensis grayi) approaches it in Paraguay. This bird has a pale bluish pendulous wattle, a smaller wing patch, and an entirely naked white face and white forehead.
