January 4, 2018 – Barred Becard (Pachyramphus versicolor)

These becards are found in parts of northwestern South America. They eat arthropods and some small fruits, mostly foraging alone or in pairs, which sometimes join mixed-species flocks. Usually nesting at forest edges, pairs build ball-shaped nests from moss, leaves, grass, bark, and lichen, sometimes using materials from the previous year to build multiple nests. Both parents feed the chicks.
