The disguised tityra (Tityra semifasciata) is an 8-inch-long bird.

A large hooked red beak with a black tip, a black face mask with red around on its cheeks, a black band on its tail feathers, black flying feathers, and gray legs and feet distinguish it.

This male has a gleaming grayish-white body with a pinkish background to the bill and a pinkish’mask’ around the eyes that distinguishes it from near cousins.

The female of the species is brownish-gray in color and lacks the striping observed on the under- and upper parts of Black-tailed Tityra females.

Masked Tityras are found in Mexico’s woods and woodlands, where they may be found within 250 miles of the US border.

Their distribution then extends south through Central America to northern and central South America, all the way to Paraguay.

These birds like semi-open settings such as plantation shade trees, forest clearings and borders, increases in demand, and other semi-open habitats.

They are frequently observed alone or in couples, sitting prominently while they seek for food.

Primarily eating medium-sized fruits. Large insects are occasionally fed to their chicks.

During the mating process, the female will normally build her nest from an old woodpecker nesting or the summit of a dead palm tree.

She will then lay up to two eggs on a bed of fallen leaves, and she will be the only incubator.

She will also have two broods every year, and both parents will feed the chicks when they are 2 weeks old.
