Título: Rhynchotus rufescens – Perdiz
Descripción: This is a bird which can be seen all over Brazil, less in the north region. The biodiversity of where I live, which is in the middle of Brazil, is full of them. I photographed this one there. Perdiz rarely flies; on the other hand, it is almost always singing. It grazes or eats small insects. Its color is part of a camouflage mechanism to hide it from predators, since its natural habitat include areas which are dry and open, with few trees. The brownish color allows this bird to blend with the environment. The eggs are also brownish with purple strikes, plausibly for the same purpose, since the eggs are laid on the ground. This bird's meat is appreciated by many, which makes it a prey for humans also.
