Easily-identified cotinga; the only large red other than macaws likely to be seen in rainforest canopy. Male is mostly shining red. Female is browner but told by size and shape; also note large bill. Rare and local in canopy of humid lowland forest; seems to be somewhat nomadic. Usually seen perched high in bare branches. Feeds on fruit that it plucks in short sallies, like a giant manakin. Call is a short, gruff bark, somewhat like call of Pompadour Cotinga but much deeper; easily overlooked.
