More Costa Rica birds from our trip in January.
We were at the Arenal Observatory Lodge when we spotted these Golden-hooded Tanagers.
The Golden-hooded Tanager (Tangara larvata) is a neotropical species that inhabits humid forest and forest edges.
Gorgeous colors on this petite banana-eater!
The tanagers comprise the bird family Thraupidae, in the order Passeriformes. The family has an American distribution. The Thraupidae are the second-largest family of birds and represent about 4% of all avian species and 12% of the Neotropical birds.
