Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Chunky little bird found in the understory of lowland forest across much of Central and South America. Male is all black with a blue crown across much of range, but in southernmost part of range (southeastern Peru, northern Bolivia, and western Brazil) body is greener with a yellow belly. Female is difficult to separate from other female manakins, but note relatively bright lime-green upperparts, yellow belly, and dark eye. Displaying males can be found in widely spaced leks; otherwise, most likely to be found singly, perched quietly or feeding at a fruiting tree. Listen for froglike “see-pur-wee!” call, with the first note high and thin followed by lower croaking notes.
