Guatemala 2006

The endangered Horned Guan is being found at more and more locations in Guatemala, as birders and ornithologists start to penetrate once-remote mountains and volcanos - we saw this subadult (based upon the size of its horn?) on a day-hike up to the Reserve on Volcan San Pedro on the shores of Lake Atitlan. I was in the first group to see it and the bird started to move up-slope, away from us, so I decided not to go up any further so that the others coming behind me could relocate it (plus I was absolutely knackered!) - the bird was refound about 600 meters further up the trail, and some much better images were captured by Alvaro Jaramillo, Bill Thompson, Peter Burke, and Keith Hansen:
