As a young boy, I always thought this bird had a strange name. You know a cock to be a rooster, and then learn a slang term for the word cock, and it all seems so strange.

Whatever the case, the bird itself is very cool looking and one of my favorites. I believe it is geographically located to Peru and the Andes Mountains.
