Observation details

I heard the song of this bird coming from the surrounding wooded hills before I saw one of them. It was an adult and it was observed foraging on the lower branches of a tree that was covered with clinging vines. For the first time, I noticed that the orange feathers on the crown grow towards the back of the head in the form of a "W." I have tried to show this plumage design in the attached sketch done by myself.
