In the interest of full disclosure, this is a composite of two separate images AND these male and female "Cocks On The Rock" were taken at Brookfeld Zoo in Chicago.

Found in the Andes from Venezuela to Bolivia, the cock-of-the-rock is the national bird of Peru where they live only in mountainous regions and build their nests on the rocky surfaces of cliffs, large boulders and caves. The male of the species is much more colorful exhibiting vibrant red/orange plumage where the female is a rusty brown.
