White-Shouldered Tanager

Per Birds of the World, the male white-shouldered tanager is black with white shoulders. The female has an olive-green back, yellow belly, gray head and whitish throat. 

I saw one white-shouldered tanager male while staying at Montezuma Rainforest Lodge in Colombia while hiking up the dirt road into Tatama NNP. 
The white shoulder patch is barely visible.

They are found from Honduras down to mid-South America, as far south as Ecuador and southern Brazil.
White-shouldered tanager range from Wikipedia.

  1. That's a pretty difficult ID from the photos you have.
