Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Scarce cotinga restricted to dry lowland forest in northwestern Peru. Male is gray with a reddish belly and forehead and white wingbars. Female is gray and buff with strong black streaking. Both sexes have a shaggy crest and a yellow eye. Found in areas with abundant mesquite and acacia trees, where it feeds mainly on leaves, buds, and other plant parts. It is usually first detected by its weird, buzzy calls that sound a lot like a kazoo.
