Amazonian Umbrellabird

Cephalopterus ornatus Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, E, 1809

The Amazonian Umbrellabird (Cephalopterus ornatus) is a species of bird in the Cotingidae family. Much larger than the female, the male Amazonian Umbrellabird is likely the largest passerine in South America as well as the largest suboscine passerine in the world. The male Amazonian Umbrellabird grows to a weight of 480-571 grams (1-1.25 lbs) and a length of 48–55 cm (19–22 in). The female averages 41–44 cm (16–17 in) and weighs up to 380 grams (13.5 oz).
