Meet Wire-tailed Manakin, A Stunningly Beautiful Tiny Bird With Yellow Face And Belly And Bright Red Crown

The wire-tailed manakin is a stunningly beautiful bird. This tiny fluffy creature is dyed with a beautiful yellow shade all over its face and belly. Its back, amazingly, is a spectacular black color, creating a striking contrast with its bright red crown.

Unlike male birds with gorgeous plumage, female Wire-tailed manakins have olive-green upper parts. Their yellow belly is also paler than males.

Another feature to recognize two sexes is the tail. The male has a longer tail than that of the female.

This striking bird lives on the edge of humid, tropical forests, and clearings. It can also be found on the edge of agricultural land, especially near watercourses.

Its main diets are fruit and berries. But this species also hunts small insects for food.

Male Wire-tailed manakins are polygamous. They find some partners during the mating season.

Female birds build hammock-shaped nests on their own. This nest is in the small trees and is made from woven fibers and grass. They then lay 1-2 eggs and incubate them for 17-21 days. The hatchlings will be fed by their mothers until they are fully-fledged, 13-15 days.
