Bird of the Week – Masked Tityra
Continuing with tropical birds for a while, this is a Masked Tityra, one of the three Tityra species.
There’s some dispute as to classification of the Tityras; some ornithologists think they are flycatchers; others put them in a group by themselves. Regardless, they are striking birds and immense fun to see in the field.
