It is a type of Guan. They have been hunted but not much anymore which a good thing as their population is decreasing.

Great!

Is it mostly a slow ground bird, or this flies long distances and has a breeding place and winter hangout?

They hang out in mid to low branches and don't range very far. There is no real winter in Colombia, just a couple of times of year when there's more rain which the locals do call "winter".

They're fruit eaters. Love the bananas I feed them.
Is this near your house or in some park?

Peter,

This is such a handsome creature.

Your photograph is so well done with great focus for the beautiful feather texture and color beneath the head and superbly curved beak!

Since you feed them, perhaps you have more treasures like this!
