My 8 Tanagers in Nicaragua

Of course there are many more tanagers in Nicaragua, but this is what I photographed:

Golden-hooded Tanager, El Jaguar Nature Reserve, Nicaragua
Note in next photo how different the same bird can look!

Golden-hooded Tanager, Selva Negra Mountain Resort, Nicaragua
I know it looks a little different, but is the same species as above.

Crimson-collared Tanager, El Jaguar Nature Reserve, Nicaragua
Yellow-winged Tanager, Selva Negra Mountain Resort, Nicaragua

Summer Tanager, Montibelli Nature Reserve, Nicaragua

Blue & Gold Tanager, Selva Negra Mountain Resort, Nicaragua

Passerini’s Tanager, El Jaguar Nature Reserve, Nicaragua

Gray-headed Tanager, El Jaguar Nature Reserve, Nicaragua

Blue-gray Tanager, El Jaguar Nature Reserve, Nicaragua

Sorry for a repeat of the Crimson-collared Tanager, but this tanager collection wouldn’t be complete without it and it is my favorite shot of the whole trip as stated earlier! And apologies for some pretty poor photos here, but my bird collection is primary over photo quality.  🙂

I am really pleased with this collection of 8 different species of tanagers in Nicaragua since I only have 3 species in my Costa Rica Birds collection! Soon there will be a separate photo gallery of my Nicaragua birds and I’ll eventually do the same for Panama, Guatemala and Mexico.  A Central America collection!  🙂
Read About Tanagers on Wikipedia where you will learn it is the largest family of neotropical birds with about 240 or 12% of all our birds down here! Many are very colorful!
