Moss-backed Tanager

After spending a few hours at the large feeder set-up in Mashpi we took in a much smaller one that was tucked into the woods for a few other species, first among them Moss-backed Tanager.  But before the Moss-backed's came in there were other birds to look at.

My best Flame-faced Tanager of the trip up to this point

There were certainly other birds about, White-throated Quail-dove here.

As well as Crimson-rumped Toucanet

Black-winged Saltator (one of the individuals in the header pic)

As well as Thick-billed (I think) Euphonia.

Finally, a Moss-backed Tanager
These were small chunky tanagers with fairly unique blue faces.
