(aka Wing-barred Manakin)
|Intervales, São Paulo, Brazil
The Wing-barred Piprites is distributed in the Amazon Basin and in the Caribbean lowlands of Colombia and Venezuela and into the Guianas. There is a disjunct population in south-east Brazil.
|It is found in the canopy and borders of humid forest and tall secondary woodland.
While it is usually placed with the manakins, there is some debate as to its affinities. It behaves a bit like a becard while Sick (and the CBRO) place it with the cotingas.
It has two broad pale yellow wing-bars with grey on the side of the head and neck. Otherwise it is bright olive above and lighter olive on the breast and chest changing to yellow on the belly.
