Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Uncommon in humid evergreen forest of tropical lowlands, where lives mainly at middle to upper levels in forest canopy. Presence often revealed by loud whistled “PEE-HAH” calls, which can be given in response to loud noises such as a sharp handclap. Often perches still and rather upright for long periods, sallying out occasionally for fruit and small invertebrates. Plumage bright rusty overall, with paler eyering and slightly bushy face. Rufous Mourner looks very similar but smaller and sleeker.
