Olive-green Tanagers!

Today saw the last full guided day of our private tour. We had a great week finding 65 lifers for our guests, who have over 7000 on their life list, so a very productive weeks birding! We spent the day looking for just 3 species on the Cedae and Theodoro trails, it was a tough days birding and we managed to find 1 new bird, Olive-green Tanager. We heard them calling some distance away and used playback and got some fantastic results with 14 Olive-green Tanagers coming in incredibly close! During the day we also had great views of Red-necked Tanager, Green-headed Tanager, Rufous-headed Tanager, Plain Parakeet, Chestnut-bellied Euphonia, Violaceous Euphonia, Orange-bellied Euphonia, Mantled Hawk (third time in two days!), Sharpbill, Lesser Woodcreeper, Plain-winged Woodcreeper, Streak-capped Antwren, Yellow-eared Woodpecker, Yellow-browed Woodpecker, Star-throated Antwren, Black-capped Foliage-gleaner and White-necked Thrush.
