Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A medium-sized resident of dense, moist montane forests. Its appearance is unique, with its largely leaden gray plumage contrasting with a brilliant brick-red throat and lower belly (note: on Saint Vincent it is largely black above). Perches motionlessly, except when sallying forth after insects and fruit. Usually first located by its voice. Song is a series of drawn out, uninflected flutelike whistles given at varying pitches; call is similar, but notes are shrill.
