Taken in Zamora, Ecuador.  It seemed to be checking unripe fruit.  The eastern slope of the Andes in this area has this subspecies - with the white wing patch.

A nice intimate view of this lovely Tanager, Paul. The habitat with fruit is a nice setting.

I like this interesting posture among the berries. Makes a good story-telling shot- well done!

A very emotive species and this captures that well.
