Curl-crested Jay (Cyanocorax cristatellus)

The only encounter of the species during my short stay inside Chapada dos Guimaraes National Park. Unfavourable background, unfortunately – hopefully better opportunity comes along during my next stay in Brazil. Aperture: ƒ/7.1 Camera: NIKON D4S Focal length: 700mm ISO: 1600 Shutter speed: 1/800 s

Plush-crested Jay (Cyanocorax chrysops)

A common but truly beautiful bird! I found this one very busy eating from this tree, and you can see it’s focusing on the Cecropia fruits rather than me. Altitude: 1036 metres.
