Today's Bird: The Golden-Billed Saltator!

Today's bird is the Golden-Billed Saltator.  They're about the size of a Blue Jay and nearly as common, as long as you're in Peru or Bolivia in medium altitude.  I saw my first one in Peru one of my first few days out birding, but I couldn't get a good picture until this one.  I actually snapped this while we were hunting for the Red-Fronted Macaw (another post for another day) in the morning on July 2, 2012.  We were somewhere between Cochabamba and a small town called Cerro Tunari.
