|Western Black-tailed Tityra Tityra cayana
|The Western Black-tailed Tityra is distributed through the
Orinoco Basin and northern part of the Amazon Basin. See the distribution map at Birdlife International.
It is found in the canopy and borders of humid forest and secondary woodland.
They feed mainly on fruit and nest in holes in trees often using old woodpecker holes.
|The area around the eyes and most of the bill is red though the bill has a black tip. The crown and sides of the head are black as is the tail. The extent of red on the bill is one of the characteristics that separates this species from Eastern Black-tailed Tityra T. braziliensis according to the HBW and Birdlife International checklist.|
