Description

Description: The turquoise tanager (Tangara mexicana) for sale is a medium-sized passerine bird. Turquoise tanagers are resident birds from TrinidadColombia, Venezuela south to Bolivia, and much of Brazil.  Despite its scientific name, it is not found in Mexico. It is restricted to areas with humid forest, with its primary distribution being the Amazon, while a disjunct population occurs in the Atlantic Forest of eastern Brazil. The latter population is sometimes considered a separate species, the white-bellied tanager (Tangara brasiliensis). It occurs in forest, woodland and cultivation areas.

Turquoise tanagers are long-tailed and with a dark stout pointed bill. The adult is mainly dark blue and black, with turquoise edging to the primaries. Most races have yellow lower underparts, but this is paler, more cream in the nominate subspecies found in north-eastern South America. The Trinidadian race, T. m. vieiloti, has a darker blue head and breast and more vividly yellow underparts than the mainland taxa, but this difference is only obvious compared to the nominate and brasiliensis. The taxonbrasiliensis differs conspicuously from all other races, it being larger, having an overall duller blue plumage, blue edging to the primaries and a white belly.

These are social birds usually found in groups.

Diet: It is an omnivore - and can feed on fruit, eggs, mealworms, corn grubs, wax worms and crickets.

Breeding: The bulky cup nest is built in a tree or shrub, and the female usually lays 2 - 3 brown-blotched grey-green eggs in a clutch, which she incubates alone for about 12 to 14 days.

Size: Adult turquoise tanagers are 5 inches in length  long and weigh about 0.05 pounds.

Vocals: The turquoise tanager’s song is a fast squeaky chatter  tic-tic-tic-tic-tic.

DNA Testing

If 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.
