Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Striking cotinga found from eastern Panama to northwest Ecuador. Male is deep sky blue with a dark purple throat and belly and mostly black wings. Female is much different: brown with scaly pattern above and spots below. Note large eye with pale eyering, short bill, and typical plump cotinga shape with short square tail. Typically found in the canopy of lowland forest, often perched conspicuously. Sometimes gathers at fruiting trees. Occasionally ventures into the foothills, up to around 1,400 m.
