While birdwatchers visiting South America are usually looking for small dull colored endemics (I'm myself included, as an avid birdwatcher too!), photographers usually prefer the more colorful guys, and with a good reason! This one, a Green Honeycreeper (Chlorophanes spiza), is always high on the list. They are found in the Amazon and the lowland Atlantic Rainforests, although they are more common at the later. This one, with its iridescent turquoise plumage and black hood is a male. Red eyes and a bright yellow bill are the top of the icing.
