Scarlet-rumped Cacique

Scarlet-rumped Cacique: Canopy Tower, Panama, July 2022 — The Scarlet-rumped Caciques visited the Tower every day…though catching a look at the scarlet rump was not easy. Caciques are members of the same family as orioles and oropendolas. I was told in the Amazon that the name means “Indian Chief” or “king”, and a brief search on Google this morning confirms that. Sony Rx10iv at 500mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. Processed in Pixelmator Photo and Apple Photos. ISO 800, 1000, and 1250. f4 @ 1/500th.
