Barethroated Bellbird

Living in the canopy of tropical mountain forests, this bird is more often heard than seen. It is sluggish and rarely leaves the treetops, but can be identified by its calls, which ring out like the clanging of a bell. The Hare-throated Bellbird feeds on fruit. Females seek out males to mate, then nest unaided.

• NEST A flimsy Clip nest made of twigs, placed in the fork of a bough.

• DISTRIBUTION Forested mountains from E. Brazil to S.E. Paraguay.
