Documenting nature in the Amazon through photographs and sketches

Guan couple

Two weeks ago I saw a couple of Guan on the mango tree in our garden.  We’ve identified them as Spix’s guan (Jacu-de-spix)
Penelope jacquacu.  The one on the left was cutting leaves of maracuya and giving them to the one on the right. After a while they each rested on separate branches of the tree. It was the first time I saw them, and I haven’t seen them back since.
