Our guide knew a spot in the small town of Camarones, right near the reserve, where we could find the Glaucous Tanager, a species similar to the widespread blue-gray that's a specialty of the dry forest.
The blue on the blue-gray tanager is mostly on the wings, whereas in this species it's more on the breast and belly.
After birding in the dry habitat near Tayrona NP, we ate lunch at a riverside restaurant where we had some neat birds; this is a Blue-gray Tanager, a species common throughout the tropics.

Thraupis is a genus of birds of the tanager family occurring from Mexico to Argentina. Some are familiar species with large ranges. As currently defined the genus includes 9 species, but this includes species from two separate clades. Consequently, the genus is paraphyletic and two species (T. cyanocephala and T. bonariensis) are likely to eventually be moved to another genus.
