The first register of that Bird in Paraty was done in our pousada. Since 1825 it was watched only twice at Rio de Janeiro state and it was in Angra dos Reis. Socó Boi Escuro lives in clear forest rivers. This bird is fragile to the human presence and has a specific habitat, in which any disturbances, even the smallest ones, can make its presence to be reduced.

This Bird is difficult to be watched.
