Puerto Rican Tanager

Nesospingus speculiferus (Lawrence, 1875)

The Puerto Rican Tanager (Nesospingus speculiferus) is a small passerine bird endemic to the archipelago of Puerto Rico. It is the only member of the Nesospingus genus of the tanager family. On average the Puerto Rican Tanager measures 16 cm and weights 36 g. These birds are found in groups of about 12 individuals. They are usually found in dense vegetation. This tanager roosts in palm trees or bamboo. The Puerto Rican Tanager eats palm fruits, ants and species from the Cecropia genus. Evidence shows that they also eat spiders, lizards and frogs. Its cup-shaped nest is no higher than 9 m in trees. Cream colored eggs speckled with a darker shade of brown. The species breeds from January to August.
