Paradise Tanager

Has this bird swallowed a glowstick? It shines in bright neon colors! Its feathers glow in purple, turquoise, blue, green and yellow with orange and red on its back. That’s why they’re also called the seven-colored tanager. Its home is also South America (Venezuela, Brazil, Columbia and Bolivia) and it lives off berries and insects.
