The Crested Screamer, also known as the Southern Screamer, is found in Southeastern Peru, Northern Bolivia, Paraguay, Southern Brazil, Uruguay and North Argentina.
The Crested Screamer prefers to remain on the ground but is actually a good swimmer. It also has bony spurs on its wings which it uses to fight against rival Screamers and also as a defence against its enemies.
