Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small bird of dry scrub enclaves in rainforest regions. All-black male is distinctive; compared to other manakins, note longish tail and blue bill in both sexes. Locally common in low-stature forests and savanna scrub woodland, always in areas with extremely weathered, sandy soil. Eats fruit. Groups of males give vocal displays from dispersed perches, often well inside vegetation. Male resembles Amazonian Black-Tyrant, but has shorter bill and is unlikely to occur in the same habitat. Most common call is an unusual, squeaky chuckle; useful when searching for this bird in dense scrub.
