Multicolored Tanager

This a male and endemic to Colombia. It really is multicolored with about seven different colors.

This the female. She's not exactly dull either. They love bananas.

Wow, beautiful bird. Whatever you call the opposite of camouflage, this is it. Nice shooting too.

Re: Multicolored Tanager

Mighty fine bird and photography. However, I have studied your two images and cannot see a difference; am I missing something? How do you tell the male from the female?  They look too similar.

My other shot of the male didn't show his deep navy blue chest.
