Photographer's Note

The yellow-billed cardinal (Paroaria capitata) is an easy-to-spot bird on the banks of swamps, ponds and rivers of the Pantanal, with the characteristic red of the head contrasting with the rest of the colors and with the yellow-orange beak. When young, it has brown plumage on the head.

They catch insects, other invertebrates and seeds on the ground. They live in groups throughout the year, although there are strong disputes between them for space or food. Here, I was able to focus on the head of this lonely specimen on the floor, but the rest of the body got blurred due to the shallow depth of field.
