[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After my last great trip to the SE of Brazil, last summer, I presented several tropical birds I photographed there in the wild. Most of them are here on TN. This is still another species.
There isn’t a lot of information to find about this bird. Not on internet, not in books. This is all I found. It's also new for TN.

The Golden-chevroned Tanager (Thraupis ornata) is a species of bird in the Thraupidae family. It is endemic to Brazil. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical moist montanes, and heavily degraded former forest.
It’s 18 cm. Dark grayish blue with yellow area on wingcoverts.

Hello Peter,
We are neighbours today!
Your S. American archives seem endless and I'm glad that you can keep coming up with a fine portrait of a new species of bird, like this Golden-chevroned Tanager.
A nice close, well-composed portrait from an excellent POV with fine sharpness and light management against a blue sky.
TFS this beauty,

beautiful sharp bird, TFS Ori

HOLA Peter,
preciosa captura,
bellos colores y excelente pose,
interesante trabajo...
saludos amigo.

Hallo Peter
A great capture of this Golden-breasted Tanager. A lovely close-up approach, showing clear and sharp details on the plumage and eye. A truly sensational and beautiful bird. Great in sharpness, lighting, and focus. Framing is applied in a most favourable manner. A superb shot with a precious and soft on the eye composition. The light blue background brings out the detail of the bird to a great extent. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

Merhaba Peter,
Bu ne muhteşem kuş. Renkleri ve kompozisyon çok enfes. Yeni karelerde görüşmek dileği ile. Hoşçakal.

It is amongst aviaries, a wonderful colour of blue you have captured here Peter. And yes I do see the golden chevron! It does indeed stick out in your image as it does in identification notes...nice that the Creator did such a marvelous work...in most case..cannot speak for my own two footed humanoid however..

Ciao Peter,
bellissima cattura, ottimi POV e composizione, eccellente definizione del piumaggio, molto bella la luminositŕ dei colori.
Grazie e complimenti.

It certainly got Brazilian colors and decorations:-), Peter.

Hi Peter,

I'm so glad you posted this Brazilian Tanager from your archives! The blue of the bird is magnificent. The colors of his wings make him a real fashionplate. Wonderful details of the face and plummage. You captured this beauty in a lovely pose. I like the composition very much.


Hello Peter, great shot and POV! The colours are amazing. TFS.

On the road now with slow mobile connection. Just marking up the best ones this time.

Hello Peter,
Very beautiful specie of Tanager. I've seen the juvenile form of the
"Summer Tanager" here, but haven't seen the red adult yet..
Excellent DOF, details, color, and well exposed.
Well done!
