Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A large and scarce tanager of montane forest in the high Andes from extreme western Venezuela to extreme northwestern Peru. Unlikely to be mistaken with a good view: dark hood (blue on the crown and nape, black on the throat) with a green back and yellow belly. Also note blue shoulder and green edging on wing feathers. Less common than Hooded Mountain-Tanager, which has a blue back and red eye. Pairs or small groups forage quietly in the lower to middle levels of forest and edges, often apart from mixed flocks. Occurs from 2,800 to 3,700 m.
