At the end of the pond at Selva Negra, there is a lone tree that serves as a nesting spot for a couple of birds. One is a pair of Blue-gray Tanagers. They are a common bird in the tropics, or at least they seem to be everywhere as I have seen them in Belize, Mexico and Panama as well. As tropical tanagers go, they are not the most colorful, but still a beautiful bird all the same. The success of these birds has much to do with the flexibility in their diet and the areas that they will live in. They will eat fruit as will as insects and live in semi open areas including towns, farmland, roadsides and clearing edges.
