Description

Description

Description: The Blue-gray Tanager (Thraupis episcopus) is a medium-sized South American songbird of the tanager family, Thraupidae. On Trinidad and Tobago, this bird is called blue jean. Adults have a light bluish head and underparts, with darker blue upperparts and a shoulder patch colored a different hue of blue. There are 13–15 commonly recognized subspecies, differing according to the exact hue of blue of the shoulder patch versus the rest of the plumage; they may be greyish, greenish or purplish-blue, with a lavender, dark blue or whitish shoulder patch. It thrives around human habitation, and will take some cultivated fruit like papayas. The Blue-gray Tanager is one of the most widespread, and ubiquitous, birds of the humid lowland neotropics. At almost any location between southeastern Mexico and central South America, it is a familiar presence at forest edge, in second-growth, along roads and rivers, in plantations, and even in urban parks and gardens. Blue-grey Tangers for sale will adapt to a large indoor cage, but really do best in an outdoor aviary. 

Geography: South America; Mexico south to northeast Bolivia and northern Brazil, all of the Amazon Basin, except the very south and Peru. 

Song/Call: Click here to hear the Blue-gray Tanager

Size/Weight:  6.3 to 7.1" / 1.1 to 1.4 oz

Lifespan: 10-15 years

Sexing: Monomorphic (visually difficult to sex). DNA testing is available to ensure desired gender. 

DNA Testing 

IIf there is no gender option listed for a bird on our website, that particular species is 'monomorphic', which means we’re unable to determine gender without purchasing DNA testing. DNA testing is an additional $149 per bird to guarantee preferred gender. DNA testing may add an additional 3-6 plus weeks to estimated delivery time to allow for gender results. See our FAQs for more info.

Temperament: A fearless personality suits the Blue Gray Tanager well to captive life, always first on the scene at feeding time.

Breeding: The breeding habitat is open woodland, cultivated areas and gardens. Outdoor housing, at least during the warmer months, is almost a pre-requisite for successful breeding. A cup-shaped nest is built in heavy cover for the 2-3 eggs. The chicks hatch in 14 days and fledging occurs on day 14-20.  Insects are essential if the young are to survive.

Diet: Fruits; papaya, banana, berries, orange, kiwi, pear, peaches and many others coated with insectivorous bird food
