Connie Alwood found a Silver-beaked Tanager in the garden or in Tower Grove Park a few years ago.  It was obviously an escapee from the Climatron which has housed these birds for a few years.

 Can anyone ID this bird? So far, it has stumped a whole lot of people. One of the better fits is a silver beaked tanager that is a long way from home.
Thanks
