After hummingbirds, tanagers epitomise the kaleidoscope of colour for which Neotropical birds are justly known. Here are a few of them - although again, I'm holding the brightest stars (including Multicoloured Tanager) for a different blog... First up, a suite of frugivores that are associated with forest edge or more open areas. Pretty, but not particularly special.
And now for some classy forest species.
Here are a few of the other birds seen.
I suspect this will have whetted your appetite for the blogpost on the truly special birds seen - the globally threatened species - on the day that the revised IUCN Red List is launched. Just a couple of days to wait, as tomorrow I am going to cover non-featehred wildlife.
