Great Antshrike (Taraba major )

The Great Antshrike is part of the Antbird family, which are better known for following army ant raids in order to catch the insects and small lizards that such raids flush through the forest. It has a conspicuous red eye on a bicolor body, composed of black beak and upperparts, with a white throat, chest and belly; the wing sports a few white markings that almost form two parallel lines, and the vent is actually black.
