Re: Great American Pointer
Glad you liked the pictures.
The birds are called ANDEAN TINAMOU, Nothoprocta pentlandii. With that name you can find more pictures on the internet. They are 25 to 30 cm tall when standing. The are very shy, they reproduce all year long, the hens put one or more eggs, that the roosters will take care of. They adapt very well to different environemnts, they live in the Andes Mountains, and you can find them in wet prairies or in very dry hillsides. Most of the times you will find them alone, not in pairs, never in groups. They will hold enough time for the dog to lock in with them, but once they feel a little more pressure they are gone, and they jump and fly really fast. They are very tasty on the table, although their meat is a little tough. Great sporting bird.
