We were very excited to spot a pair of Bare-faced Curassow as we explored the Pantanal, a fair ways off. Apparently, this is a relatively unusual bird to see, and we were even more excited as they gradually (moving quite quickly, I might add!) made their way closer to us, rather than moving even further out of range. The details in the head feathers in this bird are most impressive!
