Pheasant (Arenal Volcano, Costa Rica)

Another picture from last week, taken in Costa Rica. I don't know if the bird in the picture is a juvenile or not.

It's most likely a Gray-headed Chachalaca (Ortalis cinereiceps), not a pheasant.

Agreed, a chachalaca. I don't think the photo rules out Plain Chachalaca, but Gray-Headed is very numerous at this location (and range of Plain is said to be north from "northernmost Costa Rica", though I'm not sure how reliable that information is).

Yes, at least for me, it looks really difficult to tell whereas it is Plain C. or Grey-Headed C.
