April 3, 2014 - Crested Oropendola or Yellow-Tailed Cornbird (Psarocolius decumanus)
Requested by: birdies-be-free
The Crested Oropendola is found in the Amazon River Basin and other tropical areas of South America. It eats insects, fruit, and some nectar. The males have a long thin crest that can be difficult to see. The females weave a three to six foot long nest of palm fibers and grasses, supported by only a few strands hanging from a tree branch.
