There are two species of seriemas, the Red-legged Seriema, or Crested Cariama ( Cariama cristata) that is found from eastern Brazil, to central Argentina. It is bigger and nests on the ground or in bushes or trees up to 3 m (9.8 ft) above the ground. In the other hand, the Black-legged Seriema ( Chunga burmeisteri) is found in northwest Argentina and Paraguay. It nests in trees.
The two extant species of seriema are thought to be the closest living relatives of a group of gigantic (up to 10 ft or 3.0 m tall) carnivorous "terror birds", the phorusrhacids, which are known from fossils from South and North America.
