POWERED BY MERLIN

Large tanager that resembles an icterid. Males are glossy black with a bright red throat, which is absent on females. An inhabitant of dry scrubby forest (caatinga), gallery woodland, and open areas, usually near water. Seen in pairs or small groups. Song also recalls icterids: a loud “chirt” repeated for long periods. Best distinguished from icterids by its blunter, more curved bill.
