Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A small chunky manakin. Males are mostly black with a red hood while females are olive-green above with a whitish belly. Inhabits humid forests and second growth where it forages in the mid-strata. Despite the male’s bright red hood, can be difficult to spot. Males gather in small groups to display for females known as a lek, but otherwise are normally seen singly. The call is a nasal “drree-dit.”
