Silver-throated Tanager (Tangara icterocephala)

The Silver-throated Tanager is a bright yellow bird with a white throat (despite being called silver), and wings that are black with green linings. The back of the bird is barred in yellow and black. They like to eat fruit and will come to the feeders without hesitation. It sometimes can be confused with the Golden Tanager, however the latter is a paller shade of yellow and does not have a white throat.
