Hooded Tanager Gallery

The Hooded Tanager, or Nemosia pileata, is apparently widespread in humid lowland forests of South America, although I certainly haven't seen it much, having spent a lot of my birding time either in the Andes or in the Cerrado of Central Brazil. The male boasts a dramatic black hood punctuated by white lores and sharp yellow irises. Until a recent morning spent in a city park in Brasília, I had only seen a few Hooded Tanagers at a distance, so it was a delight to come across this male at eye level in considerably degraded habitat.
