Signs: The size of an adult bird is 17 cm.
Males of this species are dressed in rather modest brownish plumage and outwardly do not differ in any way from females. In this they constitute a noticeable contrast to the males of all other manakins, who are usually much more elegant and brighter than females. This circumstance, in particular, gives rise to certain difficulties in the matter of classification and serves as a source of doubt as to the advisability of assigning the genus Schiffornis, composed of 3 species, to the family of manakins. The song of the bronze jungle manakin is a series of 3-4 melodic whistles, the sound of which is subject to significant variations in throughout the species range. Like real manakins, a male bronze jungle manakin can mate with several females per season. However, this species does not have complex demonstrative behavior. The main means of self-promotion of males is their tireless singing, with the help of which they protect their territories and call on females.
Spread: Distribution - from southern Mexico to western Ecuador, Amazon, Venezuela, Guyana. Habitat: tropical forests.
Reproduction: The nest, built exclusively by the female, is a massive bowl-shaped structure of leaves, moss and twigs, placed in a hidden place near the trunk of a tree or in a fork in its branches. Newborn chicks of this manakin are covered with thick and long black down.
