Sat 1-19-13 Color Challenge -- Maranon Crescentchest

When I saw this photo of the Maranon Crescentchest, I knew that it was perfect for the Saturday Challenge. The bird has orange, green, white and black feathers and is just adorable. Here is some background information on the bird:

 

At the Gotas de Agua Reserve in northern Peru, a Marañon Crescentchest delivers a bright series of chirps to announce its presence, then pops into view, showing off sharp black and white wing markings and bold black stripes across its head. Perhaps the most beautiful of all South America’s crescentchests (brightly colored, long-tailed birds of arid habitats in central South America), it is also the most geographically restricted.

Unfortunately, the Marañon Crescentchest’s dry forest habitat is rapidly becoming degraded and fragmented by burning and clearance for cattle pastures, crop cultivation, and oil palm plantations.

The crescentchests at Gotas de Agua can rest a little easier now that 26 acres at this site have received official recognition as a protected area from the Peruvian national government thanks to the efforts of a local private landowner, Luciano Troyes and his family, Asociación

Carol this is so pretty - photo and layout. I love how the colors look and the swirly tree (& of course butterflies) that you used. I've missed learning from your pages so I was glad to read your notes, too.

Super page.
