Figure 1. The Greater Ani (Crotophaga major) stays in the Caatinga during the rainy season, and a month or two after the rains. It normally keeps close to water (within 100 or 200 meters distance), like a river or a reservoir.
In Mãe-da-lua reserve, one can commonly see groups of 4-10 birds, noisily moving through the trees around the reservoirs. Sometimes, these birds stick their heads together, and sing in a chorus, a really strange sight.To top of page
