Spotting of the day!

"Emerald Tanagers are striking, neon-green neotropical birds who make friends easily with other groups of birds, creating mixed flocks of tanagers, honey creepers and warblers."

Thanks for your ID suggestion Jonathan! I am intrigued as the bird doesn't have the silver-throat pattern of the silver-throated tanager and is has more green than yellow. I have browsed galleries of tanagers but found nothing similar. Can you shed more light?
