A Rainbow of Tanagers

Yesterday was my favorite Tanager from this trip, the Bay-headed Tanager, and today all of the 8 other Tanagers I photographed or really 7 other species, but the male and female Scarlet-rumped Tanager are so different, they are like two different species!  🙂

    1. Yes Margaret! It was another amazing visit to Arenal Observatory Lodge, one of my favorite places to visit in Costa Rica and though I didn’t get as many birds this trip as on earlier ones, I did get more butterflies which are coming up soon in the blog. 🙂

      By the way, this year I used my driver to go and return from Arenal rather than fly, so we passed right through Palmares both ways, where I believe you live. A nice town and bigger than Atenas I believe. Highway 1 makes me feel like you are connected to San Ramon, sort of. 🙂

      Keep enjoying Costa Rica pura vida!

    1. La mayoría son nativos de América Central total, pero los individuos varían. La Bahía Tanager de ayer se encuentra solo desde el sur de Nicaragua a través de Brasil y Perú, mientras que la Tanager de Verano de hoy es un migrante que pasa el invierno de México a Bolivia. EBird tiene un mapa en cada ave que muestra sus rangos que varían de pájaro a pájaro. 🙂
