I myself did not observe mouth, look like “mouth less” animal for me.


It is because its feathers cover the beak (mouth). Interestingly that head is in form of crescent.


The bird is called Guianan Cock of the Rock with scientific name Rupicola rupicola.


John Latham, the English ornithologist was the first person to describe this bird in 1790.
