The Hepatic Tanager is a medium-sized songbird of the Americas. They breed in the southwestern mountains of the United States and into parts of Mexico; birds found across much of east-central South America are year-round resident birds.
Hepatic Tanagers are brightly-colored birds. All birds have greyish flanks and cheeks, with a dark eye line. Males are red while females are yellow.
The word "hepatic" refers to the liver. Hepatic can also mean "liver-colored." The Hepatic Tanager is one of four tanager species found in the United States. The others are: Western Tanager, Summer Tanager, and Scarlet Tanager.
