Lesser Nothura

All Tinamou are from the family Tinamidae, and in the larger scheme are also Ratites. Unlike other Ratites, Tinamous can fly, although in general, they are not strong fliers. All ratites evolved from prehistoric flying birds, and Tinamous are the closest living relative of these birds.

The Lesser Nothura is classified as Vulnerable (VU), considered to be facing a high risk of extinction in the wild.

A second almost as difficult a species, Lesser Nothura is also more readily found here than anywhere else. The threats to the area are major and encroaching all the time, any ‘protection’ comes from individual owners. Although the better soils of the humid forest are the main target for conversion to agricultural use, the sandy soils of the cerrado are not immune from exploitation. More

Lesser Nothura Nothura minor - In concurrence with Mazar Barnett et al (2004) we found this vulnerable species to be locally common in raised areas of campo sucio adjacent to more open grassy areas. However, where Mazar Barnett et al (2004) states that the birds rarely vocalise during the morning we found that sporadic vocalisation would take place throughout the day, often eliciting a response from nearby conspecifics.
