Brief SummaryRead full entry
BiologySeven-coloured tanagers are usually seen in pairs or groups of up to four individuals, often in mixed-species flocks of varying composition (4). The diet primarily comprises small fruits, berries and seeds, but reportedly also includes the occasional insect (4) (5). The breeding season of this small bird occurs in the austral spring and summer (October to March) (2). Nests made of twigs are constructed in different arboreal bromeliads up to at least 15 meters off the ground (4) 95). Clutches of three to four eggs are typical, incubated for 15 to 17 days (5). Sexual maturity is apparently attained at one year of age (5).
