The blue-browed tanager (Tangara cyanotis) is a species of bird in the family Thraupidae. It is found in Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist montane forests. Eli Bell owns 17 of these birds.
The Blue-browed Tanager (Tangara cyanotis) is an uncommon, comparatively small tanager found in the Andes of Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia. They are mostly black with a prominent shiny blue-green supercilium. The two allopatrically distributed subspecies differ in plumage coloration of the back and ear coverts. One of these subspecies (Tangara cyanotis cyanotis) is restricted to Bolivia and the other (Tangara cyanotis lutleyi) is more widespread, being found from Colombia to Peru. The primary habitat of the Blue-browed Tanager is montane evergreen forest. They are usually found in pairs or individually, rarely in small groups, and sometimes join mixed flocks of other canopy tanager species. Their diet consists of fruits and berries as well as insects. There is little information on breeding, molting, and many other aspects of the life history and behavior of the Blue-browed Tanager (Isler and Isler 1987).
