Grass green Tanager

Chlorornis riefferii

The Grass green Tanager is a member of the Thraupidae family and is a large and robust tanager that can be found in the upper subtropical and temperate zones of the Andes, ranging from Colombia to Bolivia. This species is easily identifiable due to its bright green coloration, red bill and legs, and rufous face and undertail coverts. It is a common sight in montane forests and edges, and is often seen moving slowly with mixed-species flocks, foraging at all levels. The Grass green Tanager can be recognized by its unique nasal call notes. You can spot this bird on our tours in the Manu National Park.
