Palm Tanager

Palm Tanagers are widespread inhabitants of lowland forests across Central and South America. They prefer forest edges, and are easily seen. Birders tend not to be very excited at such a common and dull bird. In fact, Palm Tanagers seen up close prove to be mutedly elegant. They are often seen in palms, but they are not adverse to other trees They consume fruit and arthropods. They forage in pairs or in small groups, but, except at fruting trees or bird feeders, seldom travel with other species (Cornell). I took this photo on 15 July 2017 in Costa Rica at La Quinta Sarapiqui Lodge.
