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).

Amazonian royal flycatchers are typically drab-looking brown birds. During courtship, however, both sexes display a brightly colored crest that is normally hidden from view. It is rare among birds for both males (red) and females (yellow) to have such colorful markings.
