Blue-gray Tanager

Thraupis episopus

Light bluish-gray head and underparts
Bright blue upperparts and tail
Short, thick, black bill

Our early morning walk along the beach in Playa del Coco turned up a number of new birds today, including this little one. Although the Blue-gray Tanager is very widespread and abundant from southeast Mexico to central South America, this was the only one I saw during my time in Costa Rica.
