Tangara seledon (Statius Müller, 1776)
Natursyst. Suppl. p.158
The Green-headed Tanager, Tangara seledon, is a bird found in Atlantic forest in south-eastern Brazil, far eastern Paraguay and far north-eastern Argentina (Misiones only).
As other members of the genus Tangara, it is a small colorful bird, measuring an average of 13.5 centimeters (5.3 in). While essentially a bird of humid forests, it is also common in orchards and parks, where it moves through the canopy, making itself inconspicuous, as its apparently flashy blue-green coloration camouflages it well amongst the foliage.
It is also a regular attendant at bird tables, where its active behavior makes it far more conspicuous. Eats fruits and insects, chasing the latter from a perch.
