Hotel birding in Bolivia

Sayaca Tanager

My job has me in Bolivia for a few days, and fortunately the hotel where I'm staying in Santa Cruz has a some nice landscaping with some big trees. Today a tree that is apparently fruiting right now was attracting dozens of tanagers, but I saw only two species: the Palm Tanager and (if the book is correct about the range) the Sayaca Tanager. Also, the Sayaca does not have the white shoulder patch of the Blue-gray Tanager, and I haven't seen any white patches so far.
