Cinnamon attila, Guyana


Cinnamon attila (Attila cinnamomeus). This bird is native to northeastern South America (Guyana, French Guiana, Suriname, Brazil), and can often be seen in tree stands near water in the coastal and savanna areas and the Sipalawini savanna. These birds are very rare in the rainforest.

This image was taken as part of research centered at the CEIBA Biological Center, Inc. in Guyana, by Professor Godfrey Bourne of the department of biology at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. Bourne is currently program director of the Behavioral Systems Cluster, Division of Integrative Organismal Biology at the National Science Foundation.

Bourne is personally involved in administrating the CEIBA Biological Center Inc. as a nonprofit research, education and conservation field station in Guyana. Research opportunities for postdoctoral associates, graduate and undergraduate students are available in Guyana on a diversity of organisms.

This research was supported in part by the National Science Foundation. [One of several related images. See next image Here.] (Date of Image: 2004-2006)
