Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A small gray-and-white bird with a contrasting darker cap. Males are gray above and white below with a sharply defined black cap, set off by white nape and lores which are both visible at some distance; female plumage is similar, but browner above and with a chestnut cap. Found in wet savannas and open woodland, often near water; avoids humid dense forest regions. Perches upright, often in bare branches. Feeds on insects and fruit. Song is an unusual series of peeps and high, quavering whistles. Male is similar to male Cinereous Becard but has more slender shape, slighter bill, and white (not gray) nape; females of the two species are very different.
