Masked Tityra (Tityra semifasciata)

The red bill and red-black face on a mostly white body is distinctive. It was quite a surprise to see this bird, I most have been lucky as I was looking for woodpeckers and flycatchers instead. The bird was perched high on a tree, feeding from its fruits. The backlight from the strong morning sun transformed this picture. Photographed in Ciudad Colón on January 1st, 2017.
