Wildlife: Guianan Cock-of-the-Rock

Guianan Cock-of-the-Rock is another truly stunning bird. One of those species that even non-birders will look at! It inhabits secluded spots, always by rocky areas, in rain-forests in northern South America. There are two species of Cock-of-the-Rock: the Andean and the Guianan. The Guianan Cock-of-the-Rock (shown here) is found in the Guianas and adjacent parts of Venezuela, Brazil and Columbia. Almost all guided bird tours to these countries include visits to places with this fantastic bird. Indeed, it is often a highlight of such tours. Take your camera!
