More TE birds

Here are a few more. in order: Saffron Finch, Turquoise Tanager, female Golden-headed Manakin and Blue Dacni. Quite a range of body size, shape, and especially bill size. When birds live in a climate where a particular food source is available year round, they can start to specialize and evolution favors the particular bill, for example, that is most suited for that food.
