Ramphocelus dimidiatus is the scientific name for the crimson-backed tanager. They are common in Panama, Colombia, and Venezuela. They are distinguished from other bird species by their distinctive crimson plumage, which experts say assists them in mating season and facing potential enemies. These tanagers deposit blue eggs with black spots. During the breeding season, the birds can be seen in pairs.

The best part about them is that they aren’t endangered and reside in deep forests in South and Central America. However, the future of tanagers and all other creatures is in jeopardy due to unprecedented levels of pollution and human interference in natural processes. We cannot survive without trees, birds, grass, and other living and non-living species, so it is time to reflect on our actions.
