Information about the Bird Chaco Nothura

The Chaco nothura (Nothura chacoensis) is a type of tinamou commonly found in brushland in Argentina and Paraguay.

The Chaco nothura is approximately 24cm (9.4in) in length. The species is similar to spotted nothura but paler and buffier overall.
The Chaco nothura inhabits subtropical and tropical brushland up to 500m (1,600ft) in altitude. This species is native to the chaco of northwestern Paraguay and north central Argentina in South America.
The Chaco nothura is a monotypic species. All tinamou are from the family Tinamidae, and in the larger scheme are also ratites. Unlike other ratites, tinamous can fly, although in general, they are not strong fliers. All ratites evolved from prehistoric flying birds, and tinamous are the closest living relative of these birds.
The IUCN classifies this tinamou as Least Concern, with an occurrence range of 110,000km2 (42,000sqmi).
