Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

This behemoth of a tanager is fairly common and widespread in the upper subtropical and temperate zones of the Andes. Its large size and loud wing beats might recall a jay, but Hooded Mountain-Tanager is bright lemon-yellow below with a blue back and mostly black head. Also note red eyes, which help distinguish it from other mountain-tanagers. Sexes alike. Typically seen in small groups, often following a mixed-species flock. Normally in the middle to upper levels of forest and edge.
