SPECIES INFO

The Olive Tanager (Chlorothraupis carmioli), also known as Carmiol's Tanager (but see taxonomic info further down), is a species of bird traditionally placed in the family Thraupidae, though some recent evidence suggest it is better placed in Cardinalidae.

It is often split into two species:

  • Carmiol's Tanager (C. carmioli, incl. subspecies magnirostris and lutescens). Found in Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama and far north-western Colombia (near the Panama border).
  • Olive Tanager (C. frenata; monotypic). Found locally in the Andes of Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia.

Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and heavily degraded former forest.
