SCIENTIFIC NAME: Tangara fastuosa

TREND: Decreasing
HABITAT: Humid forests and second-growth areas of northeast Brazil

The Seven-colored Tanager is decked out in eye-catching shades of turquoise, green, blue, yellow, and orange. It resembles the Green-headed Tanager, a species confusingly known as the Seven-colored Tanager (saíra-sete-cores) in Portuguese.

The Seven-colored Tanager’s favored habitat is humid Atlantic coastal forests in northeastern Brazil, but this habitat has become quite rare. Eighty-five percent of the original Atlantic Forest has been cleared, and what remains exists only in small fragments.
