The White-lined TanagerTachyphonus rufus, is a medium-sized passerine bird.

Range

White-lined tanagers can be found in Central and South America, ranging from Costa Rica to northern Argentina. They also inhabit the Caribbean islands of Trinidad and Tobago.
Description

Medium-sized songbirds, white-lined tanagers are sexually dimorphic, meaning males and females differ in appearance. Males display black plumage, with white markings beneath the wing, while females are reddish-brown. The White-lined Tanager’s song is a fast repetitive cheeru. Local names in Trinidad and Tobago include ‘Parson’ (for the male), and ‘Singing Angel’; on these islands, the species is valued highly for its whistling ability.

Habitat

This bird can be found in forest edges and other semi-open areas, including parklands and gardens.

Breeding:. The female lays two–three eggs in a cup-shaped nest, incubating them for approximately 15 days before they hatch.

Diet: Paradise Earth Premium Softbill Blend & Insect Blend, variety of fruits, nectar and mealworms.
