The Ringed Teal Duck, endemic to South America, typically prefers tropical and swampy forests or marsh clearings. These small ducks are adept flyers and use their speed to dart thru their well-wooded home to avoid predators.
The Red-billed Blue Magpie is a stunning bird, but not a good neighbor. It takes a wide range of food, such as invertebrates, small animals, fruit and seeds. It also robs nests of eggs and also small chicks!
Looks prehistoric! One of the largest and most striking birds in the world--the Cassowary (Indo-Pacifc). This remarkable species can grow to 6 feet, weigh 120 lbs., and can easily kill a human. Beautiful but scary! (Cornell Lab of Ornithology)
