Green-capped Tanager

The Green-capped Tanager is classified as Vulnerable (VU), considered to be facing a high risk of extinction in the wild.

The Green-capped Tanager (Tangara meyerdeschauenseei) is a species of bird in the Thraupidae family. It is endemic to forest edge and gardens at altitudes of 1450–2200 m. in Puno, Peru, and La Paz, Bolivia. It is fairly common and possibly spreading, but its tiny range has led to it being evaluated as vulnerable by BirdLife International and IUCN. It closely resembles the widespread Burnished-buff Tanager, but its mantle is bluer (male) or greener (female), and its crown is greenish-buff. More

back also fits well for the Green-capped Tanager, and it has some green shine in the head. More
