The search for photos for the forthcoming Cotingas and Manakins monograph is almost complete. More than 350 photos will be included in the book, as well as 32 specially commissioned plates by Eustace Barnes. Nonetheless, there are still a few gaps in the photographic collection that we’d particularly like to fill, as follows.
Green Manakin Chloropipo holochlora; any race except litae.
Uniform Manakin Chloropipo uniformis.
Golden-winged Manakin Masius chrysopterus female only.
Speckled Mourner Laniocera rufescens.
Black-chested Fruiteater Pipreola lubomirskii any plumage, especially female.
Black-and-gold Cotinga Tijuca atra female only.
Wing-barred Piprites Piprites chloris any race except the Atlantic Forest nominate.
If you can help with images of any of these species / plumages, then please contact me as soon as possible (GMKirwan (at) aol.com), as we’d like to keep to our planned publication date of late 2011.
