Scientific name

This Pastaza Kichwa song, traditionally sung while making new chagras (manioc gardens) is addressed to the chikin pishku bird who in beginning times was a human chagra mama (female garden owner) and who now frequents the gardens of contemporary chagra mamas in her present bird form.
