Immaculate Antbird

Hafferia immaculata (Lafresnaye, 1845)

The Immaculate Antbird (Myrmeciza immaculata) is a species of antbird in the family Thamnophilidae. It is found at low levels in humid forests in Costa Rica, Panama, western and northern Colombia, western Venezuela, and western Ecuador. The species feeds on insects, and regularly regularly follows swarms of army ants in order to catch prey flushed by the swarms, but it is not an obligate ant-follower like some species of antbirds. The Immaculate Antbird is strongly sexually dichromatic: The male has an entirely black plumage, while the female has a rufous-brown plumage and a black mask. Both sexes have a blue patch of skin around the eyes. Source: Wikipedia
