Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A chunky little bird of lowland forest in northern South America. Male is distinctive with a black body and bright golden head. The duller female can be very difficult to separate from other female manakins, but note pale bill and very drab coloration. Most often seen around male display sites, where several individuals gather to display for females. Otherwise more difficult to find; singles occur at lower to middle levels of forest, sometimes around fruiting trees.
