[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Portuguese]
Unmistakable, with its characteristic black and white pattern on the wings, and head and neck ocher. On
however, the most obvious morphological characteristic of this bird is its crest (saves) pronounced, fringed by black points which, when lifted, resembles a fan. Emits a vocalization extremely easy to be identified, somewhat similar to the cuckoo.
