The beryl-spangled tanager is among these strikingly beautiful birds. It’s a black color but most of its plumage is boldly spotted with iridescent green to blue-green gems. These flecks give it an eye-searing turquoise sheen and create a stunning contrast with its face and back are a black color. What a marvelous creature!

This species is a small songbird of the northern Andes. They distribute in Bolivia, Venezuela, Colombia, and Brazil.

They prefer living in humid forests and feed mainly on fruit and nectar. It’s interesting that these birds spread seeds spreading seeds wherever they go. This helps a lot in fostering new trees.

Their breeding season begins in March. Female beryl-spangled tanagers use moss to build their nests in the fork of a tree. They lay 2-5 eggs in the nest and incubate them for 13-15 days.
The females then feed the hatchlings for 14-20 days, until fully fledged.

Currently, the population of this species is quite stable.
