A very distinctive and fairly common forest bird, the male White-eared Conebill has a black cap, obvious and contrasting white ear coverts, dark bluish upperparts, a white rump and wing speculum, and grayish underparts, except for the chestnut undertail coverts. In contrast, females distinctively more ‘obscurely’ plumage, being mainly bluish gray above, becoming pale yellowish buff over the face and underparts, although it shares the male’s sharply pointed bill. Fortunately, like many other conebills, pairs usually remain in close proximity. The White-eared Conebill’s main range is over northern Colombia and parts of northern Venezuela, but it also ranges to southern Colombia over the east slope of the Andes, and into easternmost Panama. Its altitudinal range lies mostly below 800 m.
