I think this is a Bay-Headed Tanager or is it?






Can someone ID it?

Is it really that bright green? Looks like a little Chirstmas tree ornament.

Yes - It's quite green: http://www.mangoverde.com/wbg/spec/spec201-210.html

This was taken in the rainforest so I had to use flash otherwise the bright background resulting from pointing up against the foliage openings will make the bird underexpose...
