I see one of your tags for this is "Pollo de los árboles." That's funny. I've never heard that before. Thanks for the smile Mauna.

Thank you, Tukup! It was a decent size, just high up in the tree.

Beautiful shot Mauna. How big was it? I see that's been some time ago. You may not remember. I assume it is small/young to still have the brilliant colors.
