The tiny but colorful Euphonias were once considered part of the tanager family, but molecular evidence has since revealed them more closely related to finches. This Thick-billed example inhabits primary and secondary growth from Costa Rica to Bolivia, mostly below 2000 meters. I photographed this male at a feeder set-up at the Tinamu Lodge outside Manizales in Colombia's Central Andes. I really likeed the foliated perch, so I went with an exaggerated 16x9 crop to show a bit more of it than a standard landscape 1.5x1 format would allow.
