The plumage of males is black with yellow, red, white, less often with blue, the plumage of females is greenish. 61 views. Distributed in the tropical forests of Central and South America. During the breeding season, males walk singly, in pairs or in groups of 5-10 (up to 70) males on areas cleared on the ground or on branches. They build nests, incubate eggs (there are 2 eggs in a clutch) and only females feed the chicks. They feed on berries, small fruits, insects.
