CREA’s Cocobolo Tanagers

Posted on Aug 25, 2015

Sean created this beautiful image of a few of the common tanagers the crew catches in Panama at CREA’s Cocobolo Nature Reserve. First is the Red-crowned Ant Tanager (Habia rubica), a species commonly found in the under story of secondary forest, known to often be found in mixed species flocks following army ants. Next is the male White-shouldered Tanager (Tachyphonus luctuosus) followed by the Blue-gray Tanager (Thraupis episcopus), both species that are regularly associated with forest edges. Photographed by RTPI Affiliate Sean Graesser for the Meet Your Neighbours global biodiversity project in Panama while on assignment for the Roger Tory Peterson Institute of Natural History.
