Even if you haven’t seen the crested screamer at the zoo, you almost certainly have heard it.
When these birds vocalize, it is obvious why they are named “screamer”—their double-noted trumpeting or guttural drumming can be heard up to 2 miles away! You’ll find our screamers in an exhibit near the flamingos in the Temperate Forest zone.
