I’m sorry to say I’ve googled the heck out of this little bird and I couldn’t come up with more than its habitat and status.

It’s called a Scale-crested Pygmy Tyrant and it’s a very beautiful little bird with an interesting hairdo. Reminds me of a miniature Indian chief :)

    Pygmy Tyrant…LOL, what a great name! :) I wonder if he is as belligerent as his name suggests. From his picture, I would believe it; from his cocked eye, it’s easy to imagine him being pretty bossy.

    There’s a bird I haven’t seen before. Admittedly, the game, Angry Birds, popped into my head when I saw these pictures.
