Blue-grey Tanager

Thraupis episcopus

Description:

The blue-gray tanager is 16–18 cm long and weighs 30–40 g. Adults have a light bluish head and underparts, with darker blue upperparts and a shoulder patch colored a different hue of blue. The bill is short and quite thick. Sexes are similar, but the immature is much duller in plumage. The song is a squeaky twittering, interspersed with tseee and tsuup call notes.

Habitat:

At the Beach of the Caribbean Sea, near Chuspa, Miranda, Venezuela.

Notes:

I have been seeing these since I arrived in Venezuela but never had a camera nearby to take a picture. Not that this is such a great picture but it is better then nothing.
