Black Curassows are also known as one of Kabalebo's residents. They are often caught by one of the trophy cams which gives us another opportunity to watch them from a safe distance. This time they are spotted on the Beechcraft trail.
Black curassows (Crax alector) are those 'black birds' seen most often inside the forest or near the river edge. They are not shy or agile birds but at the same time don't like to spend time with strangers, like me. That is why it is very handy to have a 'third eye' working for you: the trophy cam.
Like I said before, they are not really shy but surely like to turn their backs on you the moment you like to 'immortalize' them with your camera.
I spotted these Black Curassows quenching their thirst right by the Kabalebo river edge. They tend to visit the water usually during the mornings or afternoon, in between they like to stay inside the forest.
In the video below you can see a Black Curassow on the Beechcraft trail during the morning. While it took a break, it smartly found a way to quench its thirst inside the forest: droplets of water on top of a dry leaf. There is always a way to survive.
