Família: Cariamidae Espécie: Cariama cristata
Comprimento: 90 cm; peso: 1,4 kg. Presente em áreas abertas desde o Maranhão e sul do Pará até o oeste do Mato Grosso; ausente em áreas amplamente florestadas da Amazônia. Encontrada também na Bolívia, Paraguai, Uruguai e Argentina. Comum em cerrados, campos sujos e pastagens, sendo beneficiada pelo desmatamento. Anda pelo chão, aos pares ou em pequenos bandos. Se perseguida, foge correndo, deixando para voar somente se muito pressionada, chegando a atingir velocidades superiores a 40 km/h antes de levantar vôo. Seu canto é marcante, podendo ser ouvido a mais de 1 km. Come gafanhotos e outros insetos, ratos, lagartos e animais pequenos, incluindo cobras. Embora viva no chão, empoleira-se no alto de árvores para dormir. No cerrado faz ninho no alto de árvores, a até 4 ou 5 m do solo. Utiliza gravetos e galhos frágeis, forrando-o com estrume de gado, barro ou folhas secas. Põe 2 ovos branco-rosados, manchados de castanho. O casal alterna-se para chocar os ovos, período que dura entre 26 e 29 dias. Conhecida também como sariema (Ceará) e seriema-de-pé-vermelho. O nome seriema deriva das palavras em tupi "çaria" (= crista) + "am" (= levantada).

Hi Livio,

A lovely shot of this elegant looking bird. Excellent natural colors that blend so well with the setting. Wonderful details - the eye is just beautiful. I love the crest which seems to be in a strange place. Very nice composition.

Kia ora Livio, tena Koe, kei te pehea koe?

I'm translating your notes from Portugese to English.
This is a quaint looking bird - so dainty and elegant - she makes me think she is a female bird! 90cm - she's quite tall too. And lives around 26-29 years.
I love your capture, good POV and big eyes,
Janice

amazing bird, TFS , never saw this one before. Ori

I have never seen such a bird before, what an amazing creature! Everything is perfect here. This is a great POV, exposure, details, DOF, catch-light, pose captured and eye contact! It must have been impressive to meet this beautiful bird! Thanks,

Hi Livio,
A really uncommon looking bird!
I like so much the pose caught, and those long legs and that feathers almost over the beak.
It's very good the composition made, with the bird just at the center of interest.
Well done and thanks for share it.
My best regards,
JM

Hello Livio,
Beautiful natural colours. Sharp and good DOF, POV and composition. Perfect light and focus.

Hi Livio,
Super image of this Red-legged Seriema, the overall image is fantastic. The 5.6 aperature is set perfectly and creates a nice soft background. The warm colors are absolutely pleasing to the eye. This bird almost looks related to the Guira cuckoo but a stretched out version(lol). Take care. :)

Hi Livio,

A very beautiful capture of this beautiful looking bird. The long leg and the sleek body says it is a very good runner. Very fine details and composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hello Livio, A great bird shot! Very well composed image, very sharp with a very good OOF background. Grear exposure and an impressive eye contact.

Hello Livio,
This is a little beauty! Maybe not so small either...
I like the pose and the delicate details in the plumage, warm attractive colours...
Composition is well done, and the blurred background serves well to enhance the subject!
Greetings,
