My hair is on fire
This is one of my favorite woodpeckers. I really love their "hair style". Sometimes when it is messed up by the wind they remember me Einstein, but in the way it is on this picture it reminds me of a famous Brazilian soccer player - Neymar. The dirty on its beak is from the tree wood.
Every time I do bird photography at a park near my house I try to find this species. I've saw them two times, long ago, and never after. Surprisingly I found one at a place totally away from its natural habitat.

The Red-rumped Cacique's natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical swamps, and heavily degraded former forest.
This was the first bird that I really wanted to have a picture of. It took me a while to get one but in my opinion no picture can give you the pleasure of seeing it personally.

Just a tiny piece of the puzzle
So long since I came to this site. Having some family health issues now I finally made my way back to this hobby that I love so much. This tiny guy is hard to find in the trees, but it's beauty is way bigger than its size.
