1. Black-and-gold Cotinga Tijuca atra, male, Serra dos Orgaos National Park, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, September 13, 2003.  These stunning endemic cotingas are surprisingly difficult to locate as they sit high in the canopy, giving their whining song.  Males are essentially all black with a bright orange bill and a big yellow wingbar.

2. Black-and-gold Cotinga T. atra, male, Serra dos Orgaos National Park, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, September 13, 2003.  Same individual as above.
