The Red-rumped Cacique (Cacicus haemorrhous) is a species of bird in the Icteridae family. It is a species of the Amazon Basin and the Guyanas in northern South America, and is only coastal there in the Guyanas and the Amazon River outlet to the Atlantic; a separate large disjunct range exists in all of southeastern and coastal Brazil, including Paraguay, and parts of northeastern Argentina. It is also found in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Peru, Suriname, and Venezuela.
The Red-rumped Cacique’s natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical swamps, and heavily degraded former forest.
Breeding: They nest colonially but not necessarily close to wasp nests as is the case with Yellow-rumped Cacique. Compared with these, the nests of the Red-rumped Cacique are shorter and bulkier.
Diet: Paradise Earth Premium Softbill Blend, fresh fruit & insects.
