The speckled tanager (Ixothraupis guttata) is a medium-sized passerine bird.

Stunning Plumage Of Yellow and White Flecked With Densely Black, Speckled Tanagers Stand Out In The World Of Birds

The speckled tanager is such a charismatic bird. It wears a “one-of-its-kind” coat in the world of birds. Its wings and back (upperparts) are luscious lime green while the underparts are white. However, these are cleverly flecked with black spots, making this bird conspicuous whenever it is.

These beautiful creatures have a stunning tail. It’s black, edged with green. The black line from the eye to the gape also makes these birds more eye-catching.
