Rose-collared Piha - Lipaugus streptophorus
The Rose-collared Piha, Lipaugus streptophorus (Passeriformes - Cotingidae), is endemic to the spectacular and poorly explored tepuis of the Guianan shield.
Both sexes are gray overall with pink undertail coverts, but the male has a bold pink collar as well. This sexual dimorphism is unusual among pihas, as is the Rose-collared’s habit of perching in the open at the forest edge.
Currently this species is known only from the cluster of tepuis around the Gran Sabana on the borders of Venezuela, Guyana, and Brazil.
