Green-Headed Tanager Gallery

Any birding trip to the Atlantic Forest will yield great photographs of the Green-Headed Tanager, or Tangara seledon.  There is always a pair of them around fruit feeders at restaurants and hotels, while other species, such as the Blue-Collared Chlorophonia, only congregate for free food during certain seasons.  Although common in status, the tanager is uncommonly beautiful, rivaling even the Seven-Colored Tanager of the Northeast (confusingly, the Portuguese name for the Green-Headed Tanager is also Saira-Sete-Cores).  This series was taken on a recent trip to Itatiaia National Park, where the fruit feeders also attracted a large family group of Saffron Toucanets.
