The Yellow-billed Cotinga is an endangered species that only occurs on the Pacific slope of Costa Rica and western Panama. Although range maps in field guides show it occurring from the Rio Tarcoles (at and near Carara National Park) south to Panama, don’t expect to run into this cotinga at most sites along the coast because the actual distribution of this frugivore is much more spotty than is indicated.

Male Yellow-billed Cotingas have dove-like proportions and are adorned with almost pure white plumage. They seem like a symbol of peace as they forage for fruit high in the forest canopy alongside other cotingas, tityras, toucans, and other birds. During the breeding season, males perform a swooping flight display. The Yellow-billed Cotinga is an endangered species endemic to Costa Rica’s Pacific coast and adjacent westernmost Panama. Little is known about their population distributions or seasonal movements. More

mean, have you ever TRIED yellow-billed cotinga? For all we know, they're absolutely scrumptious. After giving the matter some thought (yes, I do indeed think about these things), I've reached an iron-clad and irrefutable conclusion: Human beings are lazy and stupid, so we'll only eat slow, ugly animals and birds that can't fly.
