Greater Manakin

The Varzea Schiffornis , also called Várzea Mourner or Greater Schiffornis, is a species of bird in the Tityridae family. It has traditionally been placed in the manakin family, but evidence strongly suggest it is better placed in Tityridae, where now placed by SACC. It is found in most western regions of the Amazon Basin, and Amazonian Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru; also regions of Venezuela. It mainly occurs in várzea.

The Greater Manakin is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.
