Behavior of Horned Guans (Oreophasis derbianus) in the El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve, Chiapas, Mexico, from February to May in 1982 and 1983, including preening, dustbathing and foraging behavior during the breeding season, is described. Horned Guans devote most of their daytime activity to preening and comfort behavior. To dustbathe, they use treefall gaps and only bathe once a day. Dustbathing seems to be an important factor during courtship. Horned Guans are mainly arboreal and consume mostly fruits and green leaves.
