Close-up of a Green-and black Fruiteater at Río Blanco Reserva Natural in Caldas, Colombia.

Chunky, short-tailed, flat-headed bird patterned in green and black. The Male has a black head and breast, a yellow belly with messy green streaks, and green upperparts. The Female is almost all green. On both sexes, note red bill and legs and dark eye. Fairly common in forested habitats in the subtropical and temperate zone. Perches quietly in the middle levels of the forest, often following a mixed-species flock. Usually in pairs, but several can gather around a fruiting tree.
