|Bare-necked Fruitcrow (Gymnoderus foetidus)|
The Bare-necked Fruitcrow is found throughout most of the Amazon Basin and the Guianas but is missing from the rio Negro area. It is usually found along rivers or beside lakes where it is normally in groups when perched and conspicuous when flying.
|The male is mainly blue-black with silver-grey wings. It gets its name from the blue bare skin on its neck which is all crinkled and folded. The eyering is also bare and blue.
The female, seen in the third photo, lacks the grey wings and has much less bare skin on the head.
