The tinamou’s most endearing trait is that they like short grass and Uruguay is fairly flat to gently rolling, so walking is easy. It’s strolling, really. Better yet, you can watch the dogs work. We hunted over English setters and one pointer, and they all pointed the old fashioned way, tails down, sometimes belly down on the ground, which I love to see. It’s very old-fashioned, and a good reminder that in pre-shotgun days, dogs were bred to point on the ground so hunters could throw nets over the dog and the birds it pointed.
