|White-fronted Nunbird (Monasa morphoeus)|
The White-fronted Nunbird is distributed from Honduras to the Amazon Basin, apart from the north-eastern part, and in eastern Brazil from Bahia to Rio de Janeiro. It is found in terra firme forest from mid-storey to canopy, along edges and in clearings.
In the nominate sub-species, the bill is orange-red and the forehead and chin are white. Otherwise it is dull black to dark grey.
The first two photos, taken at Linhares, Espírito Santo, show the nominate sub-species while the 3rd photo, taken at São Gabriel da Cachoeira shows the sub-species M. m. peruana, which is paler and has very little white on the chin.
