Brazilian Tanager-rio IMG_8854_1Thanks to my friend Linda Rios for giving me the idea for this quick post. She found the red and green pheasant in my last post very seasonal, so I thought I’d surf through the Brazil photos for a little Christmas spirit. The Brazilian Tanager above is a beautiful bird that eluded my lens, but since he’s perched in a green bush, I could not resist.

I have also begun posting photographs to my flickr page. It’s a work in progress.

Then there are more than a few birds in the psittacine family whose bright colors render them festive.

I’ll be back soon. Most of my time has been spent at work trying to manage the mad dash to the end of the year…

In the meantime try to imagine a bird with more colors on him than this Yellow-Fronted Woodpecker.

  1. I am mentioned on your blog with a bunch of Christmas-colored birds so I am very honored! I I love all the parakeets and the Brazilian tanager and the colorful woodpecker.
