Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small and brightly colored manakin most often found in terra firme and upland forests. Colorful male is nearly unmistakable, with its striking yellow and red crown, red-streaked underparts, and green wings. Mostly greenish female is much plainer and best identified by the faint shadow of streaking on the underparts and reddish legs. Generally an unobtrusive species, best found by its quiet and frustratingly hard to locate call, a short, high-pitched clear ‘pink’ given at regular intervals.
