♂️ Summer tanager wintering in Colombia

La Ceja, Colombia; Central Andes; 2.300 meters above sea level.


The only completely red bird in North America, the strawberry-colored male Summer Tanager is an eye-catching sight against the green leaves of the forest canopy.


The mustard-yellow female is harder to spot, though both sexes have a very distinctive chuckling call note. Fairly common during the summer, these birds migrate as far as the middle of South America each winter.
