Guianan Cock of the Rock, The bright orange male has an extraordinary half-moon crest, which is used to attract a female. The preferred habitat is humid forest near rocky outcrops. He has nothing to do with nesting once mating is done. The male’s energy instead is devoted to very elaborate display rituals that show off its magnificent plumage. Diet consists mainly of fruits.
Preening MANDARIN DUCK (Male)
Rufous Hummingbird. The feistiest hummingbird in North America. The brilliant orange male and the green-and-orange female Rufous Hummingbird are relentless attackers at flowers and feeders, going after (if not always defeating) even the large hummingbirds of the Southwest, which can be double their weight. Rufous Hummingbirds are wide-ranging, and breed farther north than any other hummingbird.
