About The Green-headed Tanager

The Green-headed Tanager (Tangara seledon) of east-central South America (southeastern Brazil, northeastern Argentina, and eastern Paraguay) is one of several extravagantly multicolored tanagers found in one or another part of eastern Brazil. It is quite similar in plumage pattern to the Paradise Tanager (T. chilensis) and Seven-colored Tanager (T. fastuosa), but these three species occupy non-overlapping geographic distributions east of the Andes (Isler and Isler 1987).
