Buff-throated Saltator

Buff-throated Saltators sport a big, finch-like bill. These birds used to be classified with the cardinals and grosbeaks. Recent genetic research places them with tanagers. Buff-throated Saltators range from southern Mexico south to northern Bolivia and southeastern Brazil. We photographed this individual at the Laguna del Lagarto Lodge, Costa Rica, on 14 July 2017.
