The bare-necked umbrellabird (Cephalopterus glabricollis) is a species of bird in the family Cotingidae. It is found in Costa Rica and Panama. Umbrellabird populations moved from highlands to lowlands and vice versa, as was proposed by Stiles (1985, 1988), and supported previous observations that male umbrellabirds return to the same breeding area every year. Bare-necked Umbrellabirds live only in forests and their diet consists mainly of fruits.
This is the largest passerine in its range and among the largest members of the cotinga family, although the Amazonian umbrellabird is slightly larger. Males, at 41 cm (16 in) and 450 g (1 lb) are larger than females, at 36 cm (14 in) and 320 g (11.3 oz).
