Gold-ringed Tanager

Bangsia aureocincta

 

Montezuma Road, Risaralda, Colombia.

 

Endemic to the western Andes of Colombia. This fantastic tanager is locally quite common. For many years it was rarely seen, since it occurs in areas that were formerly unsafe for most people to visit due to the presence of guerrilla forces. Thanks to Colombia's remarkable turnaround since then, this species can be safely seen in a number of locations.
