Medium to large loggers in the humid evergreen and pine evergreen forests of the highlands and foothills. Various levels of feed are often fed on the trunks and larger branches of the bromeliad family. The straight and stout banknotes are dark on the top and dark on the bottom. Pay attention to the light yellow glasses, there are faint spots and fan shapes on the head, chest and back.
The seven-tailed snake lined with white lines is a medium-sized passerine of the Tangara family. It is a resident breeder from southern Costa Rica to northern Argentina and Trinidad and Tobago. For large tanagers, male and female feathers are distinctly different. Men are all black; white shoulder patches are rare, and even then they are just strips. In contrast, the white-shouldered tanager always displays a bold white shoulder patch. Women are uniformly reddish brown with no obvious characteristics. Both men and women, look for stout bills with sharp mouths. Usually establish in pairs, sometimes mixed together. Not a forest bird; look for it in more open areas, narrow edges and second growth.
