[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
From my recent vacation in Panama

The Crimson-backed Tanager (Ramphocelus dimidiatus) is a species of bird in the Thraupidae family. It is found in Colombia, French Guyana, Panama, and Venezuela. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and heavily degraded former forest. A nickname in Panama is sangre de toro ("Blood of the bull")
Measuring around 18 cm (7 in) in length, the adult male has a silver sheen on its lower mandible. Its whole head and chest are a maroon red, brightening to a bright red on its lower back and abdomen. Its wings and tail are black. The female is duller with blackish underparts.
