This sound is only surpassed by the stunning Fu Manchu-like wattles protruding from his bill.

The species’ male has a white head, throat, and breast, while the remainder of his body is reddish-brown.

He has three wattles dangling from his beak, which continue to grow throughout his life, as previously described.

The female lacks wattles and is a drab olive with yellow stripes on her belly.

The beak is broad, with a faint gray ring, while the eyes are blackish-brown and the feet are similarly gray.

They are noted not just for their appearance.

But also for their peculiar song, which consists of bell-like chimes punctuated with bizarre, metallic clicks that help them be found.

They are reputed to be one of the world’s loudest birds.

Only the White Bell bird comes close.

Only found in Central America, from eastern Honduras to western Panama.

The male rattles his wattles and sings continually to attract a female in high elevations in Costa Rica.

This bird feeds on huge fruits, which it finds in the upper forest canopy.

The Three-Wattled Bell bird is classified as vulnerable due to habitat loss caused by deforestation in wintering locations.
