Status is rare to uncommon and local. Colonies often in large trees overhanging forest rivers. Forages in small flocks in canopy, sometimes with other oropendolas and caciques. Our local guides were excited to see these building a new colony in the area.". Date: 2007-04-22. Author: Kent Nickell, mountainpath2001 (http://www.flickr.com/photos/mountainpath/)
