4 Tanagers

Tanagers are to the tropics what Warblers are to North America…except for the migrant part 🙂 That is probably truer than I think, since they seem to fill a similar niche and they are certainly as bright and various and present as the Warblers in our woods. These are just 4 of the many different species I saw along the Manu Road in Peru, walking between Wayqecha Lodge at the high end of the cloud forest (9500 feet) and Cock of the Rock Lodge near the bottom of the cloud forest (at 5200 feet). They are, reading right and down, The Scarlet-bellied Mountain Tanager, the Grass-green Tanager, the Golden Collared Tanager, and the Golden-napped Tanager (inca variety, the northern amabilis variety has the golden nape of the name). I have more, but I will save them for another post. 🙂 Sony RX10iv at 1200mm equivalent (2x Clear Image Zoom). Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications.
