The Bird With A Crown On Its Head: The Royal Flycatcher

#Discoveries


When I saw this, I was like, what's on this bird's head and then I read its name...Royal Flycatcher. Now it all makes sense. If you look closely to what on the bird's head, it is like the shape of a crown like an Amazon warrior, hence its name.

According to factzoo.com ''The royal flycatcher is a name used for the birds in the genus Onychorhynchuswithin the family Tityridae. While there are roughly four separate species in the commonly named group “royal flycatcher”, the name is most commonly used in reference to the species Onychorhynchus coronatus (the Amazonian), though the common name does apply to all members of the aforementioned genus. The part of the name “royal” is in reference to the fantastic feather display on the crown of the animal's head, which is a brilliant array of red, yellow, white, blue and/or black. This spectacular display of plumage - like similar displays on male tropical birds - is generally only on display during courtship rituals and in competition with other males over breeding or territory. Normally the plumed crest is lying flat but it can open up like a fan''.  


I AM JUST IN AWE.
Would have ever imagined coming across a bird with a crown on its head? The way God creates ALWAYS blows my mind. We get inspired by one thing created by Him only to see another and another.

I am just speechless. I hope you get inspired to love and appreciate the beauty in God's creations as you see pictures of Royal Flycatcher. ENJOY!
