The pompadour cotinga is a very attractive bird. It has a striking burgundy coat that is uncommon in other birds. This bird attracts attention everywhere it appears.
Except for the dazzling white wings and golden eyes, this stunning creature’s whole body is coated in glossy, burgundy crimson. Male and female pompadour cotingas appear distinct, as do many other bird species. Male birds have all of the beautiful characteristics listed above, but females have a pale grey hue.
Both sexes, however, have a small beak and a broad gape.
The Amazonian jungle is home to this bird. They may be found in Peru, Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela, and the Guianas, as well as other parts of the Amazon Basin.
Pompadour cotingas eat mostly fruits, however they also eat insects on occasion.
Male birds conduct an intricate dance to entice females as mating season begins.
Female cotingas build their nests, deposit eggs, and incubate them after finding partners. They also provide food for the hatchlings until they are completely grown. Male birds did not participate in the rearing of the chicks.
