Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Scarce tanager found only in wet lowland and foothill rainforest in northwestern Ecuador and western Colombia. Fabulous male is unlike any other South American bird: he has glowing red plumage with white sides and slightly darker wings. Female is rather drab and confusing. She is best identified by her white sides that contrast slightly with her olive back, yellowish belly, and buffy breast. Forages in middle to upper levels of the forest, and sometimes joins mixed-species flocks.
