White-capped Tanager

Sericossypha albocristata (Lafresnaye, 1843)

The White-capped Tanager (Sericossypha albocristata) At a weight of 114 g (4 oz) and a length of 24 cm (9.5 in), it is the heaviest but not the longest species of tanager. This species is glossy black overall with a large white crown and a red throat (which is brightest in adult males). It occurs in Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador and Peru at elevations of 1600–3200 m. It lives in humid forest in groups of up to 20 individuals. Flocks of these tanagers stay in tight formation, often foraging from tree to tree together. They may eat fruits, seeds, hymenoptera, and coleoptera. Source: Wikipedia
