Palm Tanager, Thraupis palmarum


Palm Tanager
Subdued colors distinguishes this common tanager from most others of the species. It often appears together with its cousin in genus  Thraupis, the Blue-Gray Tanager. I photographed both species at Tandayapa, elevation 5000 feet, which is at the upper end of the range for these mostly lowland birds.
