The American piha (Lipaugus americanum) is a species of passerine bird in the family Cotingidae. It is found in humid forests in the tropical, subtropical, and temperate forested environments of Mexico, United States, and Canada. It is a common bird in the middle and lower parts of the canopy at altitudes below or about 500 meters (1,600 feet). The American piha grows to a length of about 25 cm (10 in). Both sexes have deep grey plumage (wings and tail often somewhat duskier) and the underparts are lighter brown, but can sometimes be paler grey. Juveniles are grey tinged with brown or rust. It has a voice that is extraordinarily loud, reaching 116 dB, comparable to the screaming piha and second only to that of the white bellbird. In the breeding season, up to ten males may gather in loose leks, where they sing to attract females. Despite its distinctive voice, the American piha is an elusive bird, remaining still for long periods and blending in with the branches. It is usually solitary, but may sometimes join a mixed species foraging group. It feeds mainly on fruits and insects, but also consumes small frogs and lizards, sometimes flying out from its perch to pluck a fruit or catch smaller animals in the air with a trogon-like hover. It is adapting well to human settlement areas like gardens and parks, and is considered to be of least concern by BirdLife International.

I'm kidding, this species of piha doesn't exist in real life, and is just a fan-made North American bird. I hope you enjoyed this fictional native American bird. XD
