|The male, seen here in photos 1 to 3, has broad red tips to the feathers on the forecrown which are lacking in
the female (photo 4).
Photos 3 and 4 show the sub-species P. e. pernambucensis which has more olive upperparts and more evenly barred underparts than the nominate sub-species seen in photos 1 and 2.
