Flame-rumped Tanager (Ramphocelus flammigerus)

The Flame-rumped Tanager looks pretty much the same as the Passerini’s Tanager that we can see in Costa Rica, except for the male having a yellow rump instead of red, and the female having a yellow belly. It has also being found that some individuals have varying degrees of orange instead of the usual yellow. Not so long ago, a female of this species was spotted in Costa Rica, an indication that its range might be spreading towards our country.
