This one on the Caribbean Slope used to be called Passerini’s Tanager with the Pacific Slope’s called Cherrie’s Tanager, but now they are all called Scarlet-rumped Tanager (eBird link), yet eBird and others still use “Passerini’s” and “Cherrie’s” in parentheses after the new together name, especially with the females which are distinctly different. And you will see below that I have two photos of females with one either a Cherrie’s or a darker morph of the Passerini’s. Confusing? Yes! 🙂 And of course the new species name only describes the male which is, by the way, identical on both slopes! 🙂
Thus IN MY BIRD GALLERIES, I still have two galleries but added the new name in front of each:
- Scarlet-rumped Tanager, Passerini’s (Caribbean Slope)
- Scarlet-rumped Tanager, Cherrie’s (Pacific Slope)
- I originally put photos in these two galleries based solely on the location where I made the photo.
