The Blue-gray Tanager is a pretty little songbird found across parts of Central and northern South America. Aptly named, these tanagers have a pale blue and gray plumage, with darker blue wings and a pretty silver grey beak. The name for the Blue-gray Tanager in Trinidad and Tobago is "blue jean".
There are at least 14 subspecies of Blue-gray Tanager, with differences in plumage vibrancy and the presence of a shoulder patch in various colors being a notable field difference.
Blue-gray Tanagers are found in a variety of habitat types, including open woodland forest, parks and gardens, sparsely treed savannas, and more. They feed on a diet of fruits supplemented with insects.
