Multicolored tanager        Images © Mark A. Chappell

Like the gold-ring tanager, the multicolored tanager is a Colombian endemic that is much sought-after by birders.   This is a pretty poor image but it's a free-living bird, not attracted to a feeder (where most of the photos of this species are taken -- maybe next year!), photographed in the Western Andes above Cali.
