Photographer's Note

Paroaria capitata (Yellow-billed Cardinal)

Thraupidae (endemic American birds, usually colored)

Paroaria (cardinals, characterized by red tufa)

Yellow-billed Cardinal does not present sexual dimorphism (males and females are identical) and, when young, they present the orange color in the head. They feed on insects and seeds and are very common in the Pantanal, where voluminous flocks occur (hence the Portuguese name, "cavalry").

O cavalaria no apresenta dimorfismo sexual (machos e fmeas so idnticos) e, quando jovens, apresentam a cor laranja na cabea. Eles se alimentam de insetos e sementes e so muito comuns no Pantanal, onde ocorrem rebanhos volumosos (da o nome).
