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.

 

Description:

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.
