Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Handsome but seldom-seen cotinga of lowland rainforest. Males are brilliant red and dark rich brown; females are duller but identifiable by red and brown plumage and manakin-like shape. Occurs in mid-story and canopy, where they are usually seen alone. Feeds on fruit which it takes in short sallies from a nearby perch. In limited area of overlap with Black-necked Red-Cotinga, note Guianan’s browner plumage and less clean-cut appearance. Generally quiet; male display sounds include a high-pitched wing whirring and short, explosive calls, both of which may be heard away from display sites.
