Bird Families of the World

Blue Manakin

Manakins are compact stubby birds with short tails, broad and rounded wings, and big heads. The bill is short and has a wide gap. Females and first-year males have dull green plumage, the males being mostly black with striking colors in patches.

The family is Pipridae.

There are 53 species placed in 17 genera.

So far I have photographed 11 different species. In case I photographed the male and the female I have added a photograph of both.

To make it easier you can find the genus name combined with the species name (visible when displaying the photograph)
