Large Birds

These animals are grouped together informally as the group includes birds from different families, including pheasants, grouse, turkeys, rheas, ostrich, and vultures. These species also tend to be terrestrial, for at least part of the day, which makes them available to detection by the camera traps. Birds in general are not well detected by the camera traps, but certain species and habitats (such as pheasants in China) are well represented in the database.
