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.
