Pink-headed Warbler (Cardellina versicolor)

…a species of New World Warbler (Parulidae) that is endemic to the highlands of central and eastern Chiapas in Mexico, and parts of western Guatemala. Pink-headed warblers typically inhabit humid to semi-humid pine-oak, pine-evergreen and evergreen forests and edges, at altitudes ranging from 1,800-3,500 m above sea level. They typically prefer forests with undisturbed understories but are also found in disturbed forests as well. Like other new world warblers, the pink-headed warbler is an insectivore, gleaning insects and other invertebrates from vegetation, and occasionally hawking.

Mercadito Mascaras - Playa el Carmen, Mexico 

I stumbled upon this amazing place while wandering around Playa. The owner of the gallery/shop Valter Brini, was a total gentleman and showed me around teaching me about the history of Mexican art.

The pieces are truly incredible and all authentic and locally made. Definitely one of the highlights of my trip to Mexico. 

Address:

Av. Juarez No. 109

Playa del Carmen
