    1. Yup, they all have that characteristic combination of a blue body with a splash of yellow. In fact, there's another member of the genus that I hope to see next month! Posted 22 days ago

    Isn’t it beautiful?! The yellow-throated tanager (Iridosornis analis) is a colorful and aptly named bird. It sports a black face, rust-colored vent, gray belly, and a bright yellow throat that stands out against its otherwise bluish plumage. It can be found in the moist, montane forests of Peru, Ecuador, and Colombia. {Spotted in Peru by JungleDragon moderator, Thibaud Aronson} #JungleDragon #Iridosornisanalis #Yellowthroatedtanager
