    1. I love manakins, I did not know about these birds before this trip. They're tricky to capture though, so very small. I'd also would love to see their dancing rituals. Posted 11 months ago

The white-crowned manakin is a tiny passerine bird in the manakin family. It is a resident breeder in the tropical New World from Costa Rica to northeastern Peru and eastern Brazil. It is normally placed in the genus ''Pipra'', but its syringeal anatomy now favours its separation as a separate genus ''Dixiphia''. It is a small, compact bird about 10 centimetres long. Males have black plumage with a white crown which can be erected as a creat. Females and juveniles are olive-green, with a grey head.. more
