Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A brightly-colored bird of dense evergreen forests, usually seen perched quietly on a mid-story perch. Varies in coloration throughout its range but always follows the same general color scheme: male has a dark red head and belly, a brown back, and barred black-and-white wings. Female has a more faded-red belly and a brown head. Both sexes, when seen from below, have a sharply contrasting and graduated black-and-white tail pattern. Sluggish and typically stationary and difficult to see; listen for its high-pitched gulping hoots.
