status

 

Cyanocorax cristatellus (Temminck, 1823)

We recorded the species in cerrado areas, generally at altitudes above 500 m. Identified by its long wings and relatively short tail with dark violet-blue mantle and white belly and distal two-thirds of tail. Unmistakable due to long frontal crest, separated from the crown ( Sick 1997), in addition to its distinctive call.
