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.
