A spectacular and iconic cloud forest bird of northwestern Ecuador and western Colombia. Note gray throat, red breast and belly, black cap, thick white stripe behind eye, and stout, yellow bill tipped with black. Nothing remotely similar occurs in range. Usually found in pairs in the forest canopy, often with mixed-species flocks. Eats large insects as well as fruit; visits feeders. Song duet is a characteristic sound of the region. Male and female simultaneously give a long series of nasal toots at slightly different pitch and pace, so that sometimes the notes overlap.
