Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Unique small tanager of high elevations. Favors Polylepis woodland, but also found in other humid forest edges and scrub. Males are deep, vibrant blue; females are orangey tan, with small blue patches on the head, wing, and tail. Most often found in small, single-species flocks. Song is a distinctive, explosive series of up- or down-slurred whistles mixed with buzzy hisses and rasps.
