SPECIES INFO

The Highland Guan (Penelopina nigra) is a species of bird in the Cracidae family. It is found in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, and Nicaragua.

Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist montane forest. Its population has declined much in recent times: Listed as a species of Least Concern in 1994, it was uplisted to Near Threatened in 2000 and, as it was determined to be less common than previously believed, to Vulnerable in the 2007 IUCN Red List.
