Hepatic Tanager (Piranga flava)

The Hepatic Tanager is very similar to the Summer Tanager, albeit with darker colors, and the fact that the Hepatic Tanager is resident to Costa Rica helps to identify it from April to September when the Summer Tanager has not arrived to Costa Rica yet. They usually are seen in the middle elevations of the country, in cloud forest reserves like El Copal.
