Round-tailed Manakin
The males of this species are easily identified thanks to the combination of their red head and white eyes. The round tail that gives them their name is actually quite obvious at certain angles and can be useful in identifying the typically drab females.

I'm at a loss for a perfect comment, so let me say this is an excellent image of a bird, the likes of which I had not an inkling such existed.

It will be a "First Image" for this species just as soon as I can get it "worked up."

Check back later!

Thanks Barney!
Check out the manakins of Brazil, I don't think any other country has such a stunning diversity of them, with the three stars (in my opinion) being Araripe, Helmeted, and Pin-tailed.
I hope to see them some day!
