The Yellow-hooded Blackbird (Chrysomus icterocephalus) is locally common in freshwater marshes and wet grasslands along the Amazon River and some tributaries, and in low-lying regions and valleys from Colombia to northern Brazil. Males are brilliant yellow on the head and chest, contrasting handsomely with their otherwise black plumage. Females are duller olive-brown, but yellow tones on the face and throat are good distinguishing marks.
