Chrysothlypis chrysomelas
Chrysothlypis salmoni

Chrysothlypis is a small genus of tanagers found in humid forests of southern Central America and the Chocó in South America. The colour of the male Black-and-yellow Tanager is diagnostic, while the female is hard to identify, as it is similar to the female White-shouldered Tanager[1]. The brilliant red plumage of the male Scarlet-and-white Tanager is unmistakable, while the female's plumage is replaced with brown[2]. They feed in flocks or mixed-species flocks[1][2][3].
