Silver beaked Tanager
Silver beaked Tanager belongs to the Thraupidae family. A common understory tanager of suburban areas and forest edge. The bright silver beak stands out on red-and-black males, but the dull gray beak of evenly maroon females and immatures is less obvious. Frequently gives a loud, metallic “pink” call. Active in bushes and other dense growth near the ground, often popping up briefly before dropping nervously back into the undergrowth. You can enjoy it on our birding ecotours.
