Pompadour cotinga (male)
As in many birds species, this male of Pompadour cotinga, Xipholena punicea (Passeriformes - Cotingidae), is more showy than the female. While males are shining crimson with white, females are duller, brown-grey. 
And while the females care alone for the eggs and young, the handsome males will mate with several females…. such is the nature.
This species occurs in South America (Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Peru, Suriname and Venezuela).
