Grey-winged Trumpeter

Psophia crepitans

Animals of All Regions Back
The grey-winged trumpeter can be found foraging and resting in groups of up to 20 birds. Although these birds are weak fliers, spending the majority of their time on the ground, they do roost in trees. 

A dominant female will mate with as many as 3 dominant males. A nest is not built for the eggs; instead the eggs are laid on the floor in a hollow of a tree. When the eggs hatch, all the adults in the group will assist in feeding and caring for the chicks.
