[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Trying my hands on bird shots in Costa Rica:
the female bird is an endemic Cherrie's Tanager (Ramphocelus costaricensis (Cherrie, 1891), Tangara Costarricense, Costa Rica Tangar. Thraupidae).
The Cornell Bioloy Lab says: "Cherrie’s Tanagers (Ramphocelus costaricensis) are gregarious birds found on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica and Panama. Though it was classified for many years as a subspecies of Passerini's Tanager (Ramphocelus passerinii), Cherrie’s Tanager was returned to species status in 1997 (American Ornithologists' Union 1997), based on genetic evidence, lack of hybridization with its sister species, and differences in female plumage".
