The magnificent green-headed tanager is a songbird found in the Atlantic Forest habitat in South America.
This small, colorful bird sports attractive plumage that helps it camouflage itself in the canopy of a forest.
It measures up to 13.5 cm (5.3 in) and weighs about 18 g (0.6 oz).
This colorful bird is a mix of several colors, including turquoise, green, blue, yellow, black, orange, and the eagle’s eyes may be able to spot others.
They are very active and social birds that can be found in flocks of 10-20 birds, and even join in mixed flocks.
They prefer to set up camp in wetter forests at higher elevations and can be seen flitting swiftly between branches to find the perfect spot to feed.
Their diet consists mainly of fruits, seeds, nectar and insects.
Females, although still pretty, are much less vibrant than males.
