Wildlife Photograph: Palm Tanager

Updated: Oct 9, 2021

The palm tanager (Thraupis palmarum) is a medium-sized passerine bird. This tanager is one of the most widespread and familiar birds of humid lowland forests of the neotropics, from Nicaragua south to southern Brazil. Their diet is roughly equally balanced between fruit and arthropods. When foraging, they often cling to the undersides of large leaves, such as to the ends of palm fronds and to Cecropia leaves.
