Long tailed Tyrant

Colonia colonus

The Long-tailed Tyrant is a type of bird from the Tyrannidae family. This bird has a distinctive appearance with long tail feathers that are more prominent in males than in females. Its plumage is black with a white back and eyebrow, making it easy to identify. It is a relatively small flycatcher that is often seen perched in open habitats, forest edges, or clearings. You can recognize it by its rising whistled call. This bird can be found in our tours at the Manu National Park.
