Small and restless tanager found in the canopy of forest borders and lighter woodlands where it often accompanies mixed-species flocks. Males have a cinnamon head with a yellow side to the neck, and an orange throat and rump. Males are olive-green above and on the tail and off-white below. Females are quite uniformly olive-green with gray flanks and are identical to female Guira Tanagers.
