Tangara heinei -male- (Black-capped Tanager) -EXPLORED-

Black-capped Tanagers are vividly-colored tropical birds that occur in Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador and Peru. Black-capped Tanagers often occur in pairs foraging in bushes and trees for insects and fruit.

 

It is one of the few species in the genus that shows obvious sexual dichromatism, with males primarily gray-blue in color with a distinctive black cap, and females yellow-green without a black cap.
