Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

This large, relatively long-tailed cotinga is completely lacking in distinctive plumage: it is entirely plain gray. Sexes alike. Found from around 2,000–3,000 m, far above the elevation range of any similar cotingas. Could be confused with Great Thrush, which is a similar size and color, but note dark legs and bill. Also focus on the Piha’s shape, with its long tail, short bill, and round head. Occurs in humid cloud forest, where it typically perches inconspicuously in the middle to upper levels of forest. Often found around fruiting trees.
