|White-browed Purpletuft (Iodopleura isabellae)|
The White-browed Purpletuft is a very small cotinga (11.5 cm; 4½") found in the Amazon Basin south of the Amazon and west of the rio Negro.
The first two photos show a fairly typical situation with a pair of birds perched high in the canopy on bare twigs where they will sit quietly then sally to catch insects. They also eat a lot of fruit and come lower for this. They inhabit humid forest and are best seen at the forest edge.
|Even at a distance it is usually possible to make out the white markings on the face. The throat and middle of the underparts are also white as is the rump. The male's purple tuft is not always evident.|
