This male Summer Tanager has an amazing red color all over his body. He stopped in perfect light just for a moment allowing me to capture the moment. This was shot in Costa Rica, on the Osa Peninsula, near Puerto Jimenez and Corcovado National Park. Higher classification: Northern tanagers Scientific name: Piranga rubra Rank: Species Family: Cardinalidae Kingdom: Animalia
Summer tanagers are the only completely red birds in North America.
