Thanks Richard, it was at Blackpool Zoo, which doesn't really help....

At a guess I'd say some sort of pigeon, maybe a south-east asian species.

Thanks James. After a bit of a Google, I think it might be a Blue-throated Piping Guan, it's the closest match.

Certainly that looks reasonable -- I was thinking of the crowned pigeons, but there isn't a match there.

I'd never heard of them before, I've just been looking at some pictures of them, they're quite striking aren't they.

I remembered that the exhibit at Blackpool Zoo was called Amazonia, so figured they might be a South American bird.
