Cinnamon Becard - Pachyramphus cinnamomeus
The cinnamon becard is 5.5-6 inches in length. It has a cinnamon red body and a lighter cinnamon throat. It has a dark line between its eyes and bill. It has a dark gray bill and dark gray legs and feet. Males and females look the same.
The cinnamon becard is found from Mexico to Ecuador and Venezuela.
The cinnamon becard is found in forest borders and clearings and cultivated areas. It is found from sea level to altitudes as high as 5,000 feet.
Cinnamon becards eat insects and spiders. They also eat berries.
The female builds a nest high in the trees. She lays 3-4 eggs and incubates them for 18-20 days. The male helps feed the chicks.
The cinnamon becard's call is a long whistling and descending "twee twee-tee tee" trill.
