White-bellied Chacalaca

You will probably hear these extremely chatty birds before you see them. (In Chiapas, a person who talks too much is sometimes called a Chacalaca.) Chacalacas can often be seen perched in the trees along the entrance canal and near the marina’s tennis courts. In case you were wondering, a local taxi driver described Chacalacas as “sabroso” (tasty). While the range of the White-bellied Chacalaca overlaps that of the similar West Mexican Chacalaca. the White-bellied Chacalaca is found in coastal zones while its cousin inhabits the nearby foothills.
