Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Striking, ornately-colored cotinga. Male and female are uniquely beautiful: males are black above, white below, with a bright purple throat and breast; females are tawny yellowish with extensive black barring. Found in the canopy of mature rainforest; seemingly preferentially around water. Its song is a mellow whistled “wheeeu”, which sounds similar to several other species like Cinereous Mourner and Chestnut-capped Puffbird.
