A bird from the ( O.B.C. ) that I do not know it's name or where it's from. I could not find it in any of my books to identify it. I do not believe is from North America. Update: The Paradise Tanager (Tangara chilensis) is a brilliantly multicolored, medium-sized songbird whose length varies between 13.5 and 15 cm. It has a light green head, sky blue underparts and black upper body plumage. Depending on subspecies, the rump is yellow and red or all red. The beak is black and the legs are grey. Found in humid tropical and subtropical forests in the western and northern Amazon Basin in South America, it occurs in Venezuela, Peru, Colombia, Ecuador, Bolivia, Brazil and the Guianas. Despite its scientific name, it is not found in Chile. The Paradise Tanager is common throughout its range. It is evaluated as Least Concern on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species I got this from Wikipedia and thanks to Kenneth McMillan and Chatou11 for steering me to the page. Their help is greatly appreciated. :)
