|This photo is of a female showing cinnamon-rufous on the
face and yellow at the bend of the wing. The male is more spectacular being brown with a scarlet crown and black and white wings. It is the males
display with its wings, accompanied by a metallic "kip" followed by a "beeuww" as the wings are held upwards exposing the white
that gives the bird its English name.
