Long tailed Tyrant

Colonia colonus

Long tailed Tyrant belongs to the Tyrannidae family. Distinctive flycatcher: long central tail feathers usually obvious, longer in males than females. Even without tail, plumage is unique: black body with white back and eyebrow. Fairly small flycatcher, usually perched conspicuously in clearings, open habitats, or forest edges. Listen for rising whistled call. You can find it in our tours in the Manu National Park.
