Daubenton's Curassow is native to forests of Venezuela, north of the Orinoco.
The male (above) is superficially similar to the Great, Black and Bare-faced Curassows, with
black plumage, a curly crest, a bright yellow patch on the base of the beak and a white underbelly.
Like the Great Curassow, he has a knob on his yellow bill.
The female (above) is very different to the females of the Great, Black or Bare-faced Curassows.
She is mainly black with white barring on the thighs and a white underbelly. She has no yellow on the bill
but has a white-tipped tail like a petticoat.
They live in tropical rainforest, usually in small flocks in monogamous pairings.
