Bare-necked Fruitcrows

Photo Wanted

The Bare-necked Fruitcrow (Gymnoderus foetidus) is a cotinga found in the Amazon Rainforest, particularly near rivers. This species is, in general, quite common, but rarer and more localized north of the Amazon River.



The plumage of both males and females is mainly blackish.

However, the male has a distinctive, large greyish-blue facial- and neck-wattles and greyish-white wings, which flash conspicuously in flight.

The female lacks the grey wings and has much less bare skin on her head.
