A Plain Chachalaca (Ortalis vetula) mother with chicks visits a water station at Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge in South Texas. Chachalacas are members of the Galliform (chickens, turkeys, quail, etc.) family Cracidae, which contains guans and currasows. This is the only member of this family to reach into the United States, doing so only in southern Texas.
