Andean Laniisoma (Laniisoma buckleyi) Near Threatened

An almost mythical bird of western slope Andean forests, that was split from the Brazilian Laniisoma of the Atlantic rainforest. Before it was called the Shrike-like Cotinga. Looks a bit like a yellowish Scaled Fruiteater, but few have seen it.
