|Chestnut-eared Araçari Pteroglossus
Brazilian name: araçari-castanho
The Chestnut-eared Araçari is found from Colombia to Argentina and is possibly the most common araçari in central and eastern Brazil.
|Its bill is mostly black with a yellow tip and a yellow line along the middle with yellow "teeth". Its underparts are yellow with a single red band across the chest and it also has a red rump. The chestnut "ears" and collar tend to look black at a distance.
While araçaris tend to be more vegetarian than toucans, the Chestnut-eared is known to attack colonies of Yellow-rumped Cacique (Cacicus cela) to raid the nests.
|The Chestnut-eared Araçari forms a superspecies with the Black-necked Araçari (Pteroglossus aracari)|
|There are recordings and a distribution map on xeno-canto.|
