The Golden Tanager (Tangara arthus) is a species of bird in the Thraupidae family. It is widespread and often common in highland forests of the Andes (from Bolivia and northwards) and Venezuelan Coastal Range in north-western South America. This particular photo was taken in Columbia.
Its plumage is overall golden-yellow with black to the back, wings, tail and ear-coverts. Some subspecies are partially/largely brown below.
