Here is a bird! Amazon Crowned ... Mukhoed!

Fans of French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, seeing this bird, startled by the undoubted similarities: the same proud bearing, the same piercing eyes, and even black-red-yellow-cornered hat on his head is the same. Sizes a bit different, but a little imagination - and here it is, an outstanding statesman and military leader.
This bird belongs to the order Passeriformes. She is one of the most beautiful representatives tirannovyh flycatchers, and the name of this sparrow Amazonian crowned Flycatcher (Onychorhynchus coronatus).
Under normal conditions, in the guise of this Ptakha not unusual, only under strong excitation Crowned Mukhoed fully deploys its luxury crested hair, turning at the same time in an unusually handsome jewelery. Crest can be taken as a smaller copy of the peacock's tail, so many call the bird peacock vice versa.
Feathers that make up the crest, usually males painted in fiery red color with blue tips. Females of different races who do not want to resemble each other, instead of a fiery red color flaunt stunning yellow or orange shades hairstyles. When folded, the crest resembles the opposite projection broad and fairly long beak. Of the bird's head in its form has striking similarity with a hammer.
Crowned Mukhoed lives almost everywhere in South America. Birds are kept in pairs or singly in moist lowland forests, preferring shady edge far away from streams
