Tangara Azuleja | Blue-Gray Tanager (Thraupis episcopus, ssp. coelestis)

When I saw all the white in this tanager's wings, I really thought this was a new species. But, consulting my field guide, I learned that this is merely a subspecies of the Blue-Gray Tanager which is rather common in Eastern Ecuador.

This is just a poor record for those who aren't familiar with this subspecies.
