The Crimson-backed Tanager (Ramphocelus dimidiatus) is a strikingly beautiful bird occurring in Panama, Colombia, Venezuela, and up to French Guyana. The species can be found in shrubby areas, gardens, and secondary forests. Especially the male has a brightly red coat and even more remarkable is the silvery lower mandible. Females on the other hand are much duller and have a uniform dark bill. I have photographed these pretty birds on a journey through Panama in February 2014 where tanagers can be seen quite commonly.
