These small birds frequent the dim understorey of rain forest where the males gather in leks. The leks are actually small dancing arenas which comprise of a small cleared area with a vertical branch at each end. Competing males skip back and forth from one end to the other whilst displaying their white beards and making bizarre noises that sound like a discharging firecracker. Whilst some of these noises are vocalisations most are actually created by wing-snapping. This image was taken at the lek in the grounds of the AWC in the Arima Valley, Trinidad.
