Bare-necked Fruitcrow


The Bare-necked Fruitcrow (Gymnoderus foetidus) is a species of bird in the Cotingidae family. It is the only member of the genus Gymnoderus. It is found in the Amazon Rainforest, especially near rivers. It is relatively common, but generally rarer and more local north of the Amazon River. Both sexes are overall mainly blackish, but the male has distinctive, large greyish-blue facial- and neck-wattles and greyish-white wings, which flash conspicuously in flight.
