Product Description

The turquoise tanager (Tangara mexicana) is a medium-sized passerine bird. This tanager is a resident bird from Trinidad, Colombia and Venezuela south to Bolivia and much of Brazil (despite its scientific name, it is not found in Mexico)

Description: These medium-sized birds are about 13 – 14 centimeters (51/2 inches) long, including their tail and they are about 20 grams in weight. Their feathers at maturity are mostly black and blue, in addition to the distinctive turquoise edging found on the main wing plumage. The majority of these birds have a yellowish underside, with the exception of Brazilian Turquoise Tanagers which have a white underside.
