FawnBreastedTanager

July 24, 2017 – Fawn-breasted Tanager (Pipraeidea melanonota)

These tanagers are found in parts of northwestern, central, and eastern South America. Foraging in pairs or alone, they eat berries, fruit pulp, seeds, flowers, buds, and insects. Their nests are cup-shaped and built on horizontal branches, hidden by moss and plants growing on the trees. Both parents care for the chicks.
