|Black-faced Dacnis Dacnis lineata|
|Brazil and Ecuador.
The Black-faced Dacnis is distributed throughout most of the Amazon Basin and the Guianas. See the distribution map at Birdlife International. They are found in the canopy and borders of humid forest or around clearings when attracted by fruiting trees.
|Both male and female have a yellow iris. The male is turquoise blue with black lores,
mask, wings and tail. The centre of the belly and crissum are white as are the underwing coverts which you can see just showing through at the front
of the wing.
The female (on the right in photo 3) is much less colourful being largely brown-olive above and pale grey below.
