Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

This small tanager has a very limited range near the border of Panama and Colombia. Note the mostly black head with pale greenish spots on the cheek and nape, extensive dark spotting on breast and flanks, rich buffy belly, black back, and blue edges on wing feathers. Uncommon in montane forest and edges from around 600 to 1,350 m, where pairs or small groups often forage with mixed-species flocks in the middle to upper levels. Green-naped was recently split from Spangle-cheeked Tanager, which is found in western Panama and Costa Rica, and looks very similar but does not overlap in range.
