Observations at a Paradise Tanager nest

Author(s): TERESA M . WOOD,

Paradise TanagerThe Paradise Tanager (Tanguru chifensis) inhabits the canopy and forest edge of tropical forests in the Amazon Basin and Guianan region of South America (Isler and Isler 1987, Ridgely and Taylor 1989). At the Tambopata Nature Reserve in southeast Peru (12″5O’S, 69″17’W) it is common in canopy mixed species flocks (Donahue et al. 1987). We observed a nest there from an observation platform in the canopy of an emergent tree.
