Mr & Mrs Red-bellied Grackle

Hypopyrrhus pyrohypogaster

(Red-bellied Grackle / Cacique candela)


The Red-bellied Grackle is a distinctive rare blackbird of cloud forest in the Colombian Andes. Red-bellied Grackles moves through the forest in groups, giving a variety of calls. While it has been recorded from all three ranges of the Andes in Colombia, contemporary localities are few. Deforestation is thought to have been a major reason for declines.
