Tangara cyanocephala cearensis

By mdiniz
It's a bird restricted to Ceará State in Brazil, usually observed above 500 m altitude, where there is greater availability of fruit and mild temperatures. It feeds on fruits, in small groups, sometimes in mixed flocks. Not very picky about the quality of habitat, occupying areas of coffee cultivation shadowed by forest plantations and similar sites, where it arrives to build nests. The males have a black robe on the back, which the females have green spots. Its ability to shift between forest fragments is considerable and may be reproduced in captivity. Nevertheless, it is classified as endangered specie, especially because of illegal traffic.
