Golden-browed Chlorophonia Chlorophonia callophrys




In the nonbreeding season (July-November) they roam in groups of less than twelve that consist mostly of immatures and females (Skutch 1954). But by December, the birds pair again (Skutch 1954). They follow set rounds as they forage and move. They may mix with other species or in a group of their own species. The birds fly from one tree to another in a rapid bouncing flight.
