F me. I had no idea that a small patch could be worth so much. In fact I've never heard of it or seen it in any recipes!

Barry. Just the throat patch from this bird sells for over $3000, if you can find one. And expensive hobby....

Hmmmm. The Red Ruffed Fruit Crow is native to South America. They are protected in their range. And while the locals no doubt poach some, many would probably like nothing more than a chance to hunt some Yanqui with a shotgun. I chatted with a fellow for a while that was spending time down there while waiting for his ship to load. He said he was going to try to obtain some. Haven't heard from him since...it would seem you would have better luck obtaining a few kilos of cocaine than one of these birds. Likely just about as easy to get into the US, too.
