This week’s photo, taken September 29, 2017 in Aguas Calientes, Peru, features a BLUE-NAPED CHLOROPHONIA.
If you are bird-watching for the first time in a far away country, you are bound to see birds you’ve never seen before, and you might also encounter some you’ve never heard of – like a Chlorophonia. What the heck is that? It sounds like a condition.
“Doctor, what do I have?”
“You have Chlorophonia.”
“Oh no, that sounds really bad.”
“Don’t worry, it’s not serious; however, eventually you will develop blue rings around your eyes.”
