Male and female Glistening Green Tanagers look alike, with the female’s shade a bit paler. Their neon green feathers are enough to make them stick out, and they don’t need a colorful combination to shine. In fact, their photos often appear to be photoshopped due to their glowy appearance.

Apart from their appearance, Glistening Green Tanagers can be recognized by their wheezy and lispy calls. They are found alone or in pairs joining mixed-species flocks to forage for food, including both fruits and insects. They often hang upside down like bats and pick insects from the undersides of leaves.

These particular tanagers seem to prefer insects to berries, but they play an important role in the ecosystem by dispersing the seeds of the fruits they consume. Glistening Green Tanagers are currently considered to have a stable population, and it is hoped that they will not face any grave threats in the future.
