SCIENTIFIC NAME:Chlorornis riefferii POPULATION: Unknown, but considered fairly common TREND: Decreasing HABITAT: Humid mountain forests and edges, Colombia south to Bolivia
The aptly named Grass-green Tanager is the only member of its genus, Chloronis, a Greek word derived from khloros (green) and ornis (bird). In Spanish its common name is Tangara Lorito, “little parrot tanager.” Whatever the language, this bird of the Andes is an unmistakable sight: an intense green with chestnut mask and undertail accented by bright red legs, feet, and bill.
Although not endemic or endangered like theCherry-throated Tanager, the Grass-green Tanager is still vulnerable tohabitat losscaused by land clearing for farming, grazing, logging, and human settlement.
