Golden-eared Tanagers (Tangara chrysotis) are small, Neotropical forest-dwelling birds that are found in the Andes of Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia. They are most commonly found at elevations of 1100-1700 m. These tanagers are characterized by colorful feathers, including their namesake coppery-gold ear coverts. Very little is known about these uncommon birds, including many aspects of their life history, reproduction, and population sizes and trends. Under the IUCN Red List conservation criteria, this species is considered a species of Least Concern. The Golden-eared Tanager is confined to a narrow elevational band of habitat, however, that needs to be protected to prevent significant population decreases.
