The blue-billed curassow feeds mainly on the ground (5), consuming fruit, shoots, invertebrates and perhaps even carrion (2). All cracids are largely monogamous and live in pairs, although some males have been observed with two or three mates (6). Breeding occurs in the dry season, with nesting extending from December to March, and parties of adults and chicks have been observed from March to August (2) (6).
