Giant Coua

Coua gigas

 

Zombitse NP, Atsimo-Andrefana region, Madagascar.

 

The couas are all endemic to Madagascar, and some of the neatest birds in the country - large, long-tailed, and with colorful bare skin on their faces. All but a few are terrestrial. The Giant Coua is the largest, reaching over half a meter in length.
