Puedes observar que al momento de impactar la superficie del árbol con su pico, su ojo es cubierto por la "membrana Nictitante" para protegerlo.
.
.
La membrana nictitante (del latín nictare, parpadear), o "tercer párpado", es una característica fisiológica propia de ciertos animales; se trata de una telilla o párpado accesorio transparente o translúcido que puede cerrarse para proteger al globo ocular y para humectar por debajo de los párpados principales, mientras se mantiene visibilidad.- fuente:wikipedia. *****************************************
Take a close up, note as soon as the beak strike the surfece of the tree, the eyes is protected by the "nictitating membrane" .
.
The nictitating membrane is a transparent or translucent third eyelid present in some animals that can be drawn across the eye for protection and to moisten it while maintaining vision. The term comes from the Latin word nictare, meaning "to blink". It is often called a third eyelid or haw, and may be referred to in scientific terminology as the plica semilunaris, membrana nictitans, or palpebra tertia. Unlike the upper and lower eyelids, the nictitating membrane moves horizontally across the eyeball. -source:wikipedia

Anolis Divius [ Anolis cola azul ]
.
.
The name divius is the neuter singular nominative comparative of divus (Latin for “divine”, “heavenly”, and refers to the “sky god”), in allusion to the blue coloration of this species.
A moderate-sized to moderately large species of Anolis that differs from all other Hispaniolan congeners except A. aliniger, A. singularis, and the species described below by the combination of having predominantly blue or green overall coloration in life (capable of rapid color change to brown); relatively short hind legs (fourth toe of adpressed hind leg reaching to ear opening or only slightly beyond ear opening); male dewlap is yellowish green or brown (after metachrosis). Conservation. Given its small geographic range and continuing threat from deforestation, KÖHLER & HEDGES 2016 consider the conservation status of Anolis divius to be Endangered based on criterion B1ab (iii) of the IUCN Red List Categories

The Hispaniolan amazon or Hispaniolan parrot (Amazona ventralis) is a species of parrot in the Psittacidae family. It is found on Hispaniola (Haiti and the Dominican Republic), and has been introduced to Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The main features that differentiate it from other amazons are the white forehead, pale beak, white eye-ring, blue ear patch, and red belly.
Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests, subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical moist montane forests, and plantations. It is threatened in its home range by habitat loss and the capture of individuals for the pet trade.
The presence of this bird outside of its native Hispaniola is due to it being introduced, this in part from a release of birds raised in captivity as a studied rehearsal for the re-colonization program of the highly endangered Puerto Rican amazon.
