Small, plump bird with stout bill. Striking male has chestnut belly, yellow sides, green breast and face, and blue crown. Female mostly green with blue crown and rufous eyebrow. Uncommon in Andean cloud forest from Venezuela to Peru. Typically seen in pairs, usually in the canopy but occasionally descends lower to feed in a fruiting tree. Listen for its sputtering calls, quite unlike most other chlorophonias.
