Mystery Bird of December

Another beautiful bird with amazing color! Only problem is we don’t know what kind of bird this is…

OK, someone, tell us who he is…

There are so many excellent photos of UNIDENTIFIED beautiful birds available on the Internet. This is the next in a series of Monthly Mystery Birds from around the world. This series seeks to tap the knowledge of people who recognize these beauties, and to spread that knowledge to the rest of us. There’s something satisfying about knowing the names of birds. They become more familiar to us and seem more like friends when we know what to call them. Sort of like, “Oh, there’s Brad Pitt”, rather than, “Oh, there’s some guy on the street.”

After some expert supplies the name of our Mystery Bird, we’ll add some details about just who that bird is and where it’s from.

If you recognize this bird, please respond in the Comments Section below, and help to enlighten our readers.

If you have any views on this, or experiences of your own you’d like to share, We’d love to hear from you – please leave a comment below.

    It’s a Golden-browed Chlorophonia (Chlorophonia callophrys), native to Costa Rica and Panama.

      Jay, thank you very much for identifying our December Mystery Bird! It certainly aptly named with that golden headband. I’ll provide a new post providing some details on the Golden-browed Chlorophonia for the rest of our readers.

      Do you know any of the earlier Mystery Birds?
