Species Description
The Spotted Nothura is a type of Tinamou and breeds in the grassy habitats of South America. The Spotted Nothura is about two feet in length and typically eats seeds and plants. One interesting quality of the Spotted Nothura is its rapid reproduction cycle. The female bird matures early, two months after hatching, and can produce 5-6 clutches of eggs per year. The male Spotted Nothuras incubate the eggs and mature more slowly.
