Hello friends, this is the male Tanager? Warbler? I don't know.. Like I said this is the husband of the female I posted yesterday.. As you can see he was collecting nesting material while the female followed and watched like a nagging wife.. lol! Very interesting behavior..

Hello Everton,
This is not the warbler I thought, but the Finsch's Euphonia, euphonia finschi. I saw a few euphonias in Brazil, but not this one.
Beautiful photo in very nice natural colours. Good sharpness, details and an attractive pose.

i can not help you, you clicked the photo at the best moment

Hello Everton,

Lovely shot of these bird, wonderful pose with the beak and eye to the camera, fine details and splendid sharpness.
Nice plumage too. TFS.

Best regards,

Not E. finschi (it just barely gets into Brazil - only in extreme north Roraima State).

In central Goias, black-purple throat, yellow-orange underbelly including crissum, forehead patch starting to finish aborally just posterior to the posterior eye canthus - only one choice here. Adult male Euphonia chlorotica.

Bela foto, belo momento capturado!!!
