  • Paujil: Inspiration for the Quimbaya

    Blue-billed curassow / Blaulappenhokko / Crax alberti
    Conservation status: CR - Critically Endangered

    Blue-Billed curassows are morning and evening singers and sometimes on moonlit nights. Some may continue to sing well past dawn or at intervals throughout the day.

    They were an important symbol in ancient Pre-Colombian indigenous cultures such as Quimaya and Calima, with many gold figures depicting these spectacular birds. However, they were virtually unknown to the modern world until 2003.

    Crax Alberti can only be found in Colombia, with small and fragmented populations between La Guajira, Magdalena, south Antioquia and Boyacá; inhabiting tropical forests between 150 and 1,200 metres altitude. According to BirdLife International, only 250-1,000 of them remain in the wild and are critically endangered due to severe habitat destruction and indiscriminate hunting.

    Living alone or in pairs, Blue-billed curassows forage for insects, fruits and seeds directly on the forest floor. They are known for leaving seeds intact, making them excellent dispersers, and actively participate in forest planting.
