Tanagers and other colorful birds

  |   Birds, Stories   |   No comment

Tanagers are an incredible family of birds. They have so many cool colors and patterns that is one of my favorite families.  They can be seen at feeders, in mixed flocks in a trail,  in rainforest, in cloud forest and even in dry forests.

In this story you can see a small sample that some of the species that we have in Costa Rica and some places of where to photograph them.
