The Royal Flycatcher. Native to Central South America, this little bird has a crazy head plume!! Oddly enough, this beautiful ( slightly silly looking) fan is rarely displayed like this. It's usually flat against the top of the head.
The Amazonian Royal Flycatcher is found in forests and woodlands throughout most of the Amazon basin. They are about 6 1/2 inches in length and like to dart out from branches to catch flying insects or pluck them from leaves. They build very large nests (sometimes up to 6 feet long) on a branches near water. The nest hangs over the water which makes it hard for predators to reach.
