Little Chachalaca (Ortalis motmot) Science Article 1
Guianan Chachalaca (Ortalis motmot) is rather common in the coastal area and the savanna region of Surinam. It is not a bird of thick forests but its favorite habitat is dense patches of jungle along the rivers and creeks and also the sandy savanna’s covered with scattered and almost impenetrable bushes and surrounded on all sides by forest. It is not averse to cultivation, provided it is not too intensive, and it often frequents deserted and thickly overgrown plots of cultivation.
