Brown-flanked Tanager

About the Brown-flanked Tanager

The Brown-flanked Tanager is a charming bird endemic to Peru, where it is found in mostly dry habitat of shrubs and hedgerows. It features a muted combination of colors: predominantly drab grey-brown body plumage with a rufous-orange head and upper breast with white below. 

Brown-flanked Tanagers primarily feed on insects, moths, and caterpillars. They feed in pairs or small mixed foraging flocks, working just inside of foliage in search of prey.

Despite their colorful head plumage, they can be elusive, blending well with the dense forest foliage, especially when feeding within shrubs and other greenery of their habitat.
