Abstract

The Trinidad Piping-Guan (or Pawi), Pipile pipile, (family Cracidae) is a species endemic to the island of Trinidad (Hayes et al. 2009). It plays an important role in large seed dispersal, and is important economically for ecotourism (Naranjit 2012). Here, I add to the observation of parents accompanying chicks on the ground.
