Chachalacas and Their Chick

Please click on the picture to enlarge it so you see the small Chachalaca chick on the right. I love to feed them watermelon but I have decided they will eat anything! I looked out and wondered what a quail was doing in my yard then I saw it again with this pair of Chachalacas. What a treat. Eventually we saw 2 chicks.

Date May 2010
Location: My backyard
Behavior: Very guarded the second time I spotted them. The stay close by the chicks.
