The Speckled tanager (Ixothraupis guttata) is a medium-sized passerine bird. Its wings and back (upperparts) are luscious lime green while the underparts are white. However, these are cleverly flecked with black spots, making this bird conspicuous whenever it is.These beautiful birds have a stunning tail that is black, edged with green.

There are some details that make it easy to tell a female from a male.

The female’s breast has fewer black markings than male birds. And, the green borders are wider on the upper parts. These are not as defined as those of male birds.

They dine mainly on fruit, but they will also eat seeds and insects.


When it is time for breeding, the female will build a small cup-shaped nest, into which she lays brown-blotched white eggs, incubating them for 13-14 days. Chicks are fully-fledged after 14-18 days.


The population of this bird is currently quite stable.
