We are happy to share the first videos of Baudo Guan on the IBC! Up until now, few images had been achieved of this species, but this seems to be changing as more localities for it are being discovered. In the past, it was considered a subspecies of Penelope montagnii, but, despite their ranges being contiguous, with overlap in W Ecuador and possibly also in SW Colombia, there is no trace of intergradation. This specific bird was filmed at CVC Yatacué Camp, in Farallones de Cali National Park, by Josep del Hoyo on a trip to Colombia.
