Strikingly beautiful multicolored tanager found in the canopy of humid forests, at forest borders, and in second growth, urban parks, and gardens. The head, nape, chin, and breast are a bright aquamarine-green with a lime green neck patch, wings, belly and an orange rump. Note the large black patch on the wings and throat. Females are duller with a scaly back. Gathers in small groups and often joins mixed-species flocks. Frequently visits feeding stations.
