Golden-hooded tanager taking a bath, Uraba, Colombia This Golden-hooded tanager landed on top of some type of palm-like tree that had some leafs with puddles of water in them, and proceeded to take a bath several minutes long. Very entertaining to watch, and an interesting interaction between these tiny water collections and the bird, as I know these puddles are also often used by tree frogs. <br />

The golden-hooded tanager is a medium-sized passerine bird. This tanager is a resident breeder from southern Mexico south to western Ecuador. The golden-hooded tanager's call is a sharp ''tsit'' and the song is a tuneless rattled series of ''tick'' sounds.
