Yellow Tail Bird

by Trevor E Holewinski

The name ‘yellow tail bird’ comes from the fact that its tail is actually yellow. The back of the bird is a solid black color and the young birds have a greenish-olive-colored body. They are usually found in open areas with tall grass and trees. The females have a darker yellow chest, while males have a dark reddish-brown body. Their wings are striped white and the males have a white head.

Although its lifespan is unknown, the yellow tail bird is known to live for up to 15 years. It feeds on insects in agricultural areas, including bananas. They contribute to the well-being of local economies, as they consume pesticides and fertilizers. They also provide a unique experience for people who enjoy birding and ecotourism. The plight of the species is the result of the increased popularity of cage-bird trade.

Populations of this bird are declining in Costa Rica, Peru, and Venezuela due to the commercial trade in captive birds. There are fewer of them in the wild.
