Glossy Deep Blue Coat, Black Mask And Red Eyes, This Striking Tanager Is Also A Nature Attention

The masked flowerpiercer is a chubby large bird with glossy dark blue plumage. This coat may not be as vivid as other birds in the tanager Thraupidae family, it still helps this species shine. Additionally, the black mask combining with the startling bright red eyes make them conspicuous in nature.

Actually, these birds have black wing-coverts, flight feathers, and tail with blue edges. They look so cool in this suit, right?

The male and the female look quite similar although she is slightly duller. Young birds are duller than adults with dark grey underparts.

The breeding season of this species is from June to September and might be longer in Venezuela and Colombia. In these regions, they breed until December, March, and April.

After finding mates, the female starts building her cup-shaped nest. This nest is made from grass and moss, lined with plumage and placed in a bush. She then lay eggs in her nest and incubates on her own. Once the eggs hatch, both parents feed their babies until fully fledged.

Masked flowerpiercers are native to South America, found in Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, and Venezuela. They prefer living in humid forests in and along the borders. These birds also inhabit mountainous areas and shrubby wooded areas.

Living in these locations, these striking blue tanagers forage in the treetops with their hooked bill. They feed mainly on nectar and small fruit. They also give seeds and insects a try if they are available nearby.
