Description and Background:
The Kagu or Cagou (Rhynochetos jubatus) is a
crested, long-legged, and bluish-grey bird endemic to
the dense mountain forests of New Caledonia. It is
the only surviving member of the genus Rhynochetos
and the family Rhynochetidae, although a second
species has been described from the fossil record.
Measuring 55 cm (22 in) in length, it has pale grey
plumage and bright red legs. Its 'nasal corns' are a
unique feature not shared with any other bird. Almost
flightless, it a spends its time on or near the ground,
where it hunts its invertebrate prey, and builds a nest
of sticks on the forest floor. Both parents share
incubation of single egg , as well as rearing the chick.
It has proved vulnerable to introduced predators , and
is threatened with extinction.
