Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small attractive tanager, widespread and fairly common in lowlands and foothills. Male unmistakable: mostly olive above with black mask bordered by yellow, orange breast and rump, and grayish flanks. Female mostly dull yellowish and potentially confusing, especially compared with female Yellow-backed Tanager. Note pale eyebrow and vague dark line through the eye, yellowish bill, and paler grayish flanks. Usually seen in pairs, often with a mixed-species flock. Forages actively in the canopy or middle levels of forests, edges, gardens, and second growth.
