Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Male is all black with a conspicuous orangey crest. Female is confusing: dark dull brown, with typical stout tanager bill. Males are usually nearby to help with identification. Often in flocks, which noisily move through the forest, usually at lower or middle levels. Sometimes joins larger mixed-species flocks. Listen for squeaky, nasal chipping calls.
