Curassow, large forest-dwelling bird (especially genus Crax) with dark plumage and a crest of curved feathers. The curassow ranges from Texas to Argentina. Currasow are pheasantlike, with strong legs and heavy tails, and spend their time running along branches and fluttering clumsily from tree to tree. Curassow feed on fruit, leaves, and small animals and are hunted as gamebirds.
