photographing and learning about wildlife
The Paradise Tanager is a brilliantly multicolored, medium-sized songbird whose length varies between 13.5 and 15 cm. It has a light green head, sky blue underparts and black upper body plumage.
This bird was seen and photographed during my morning spent from the observation canopy tower within Yasuni. We were able to find 7 species of Tanager, 3 species of Aracari, 2 species of Toucan, 4 species of Macaw, and many others during this brief morning. But without a doubt, one of the best birds to make its way close to the tower to forage, were these Paradise Tanagers.
