Rose-throated Becard

Pachyramphus aglaiae

Rose-throated Becard
copyright Brian Small
Length: 7 in. (18 cm)
A tropical species, the Rose-throated Becard occurs in desert riparian forests, open woodlands and mangroves. They feed on insects hawked from the air or gleaned from leaves, and during the fall and winter they rely on fruits. The large, hanging nest is made of plant fibers woven with bark shreds, spider webbing and leaves and suspended high in a tree top from the tip of a branch. The four-digit banding code is RTBE.
