Bronzy Inca

Coeligena coeligena

The Bronzy Inca is a bird from the Thraupidae family. It is commonly found in open and semi-open areas with larger trees and hedges, towns, villages, and gardens in tropical and subtropical regions. It feeds on fruit at mid-upper levels in trees and often perches on telephone wires. The bird has a distinctive appearance with a beady dark eye and a fairly stout bill. The populations located east of the Andes in South America have broad white wing-bars, which make them look very different. The bird could be find in our birding tour to Peru.
