The Golden-hooded Tanager (Tangara larvata) is a neotropical species that inhabits humid forest and forest edges. It belongs to the speciose genus Tangara and is often considered to belong to a superspecies with the Masked Tanager (Tangara nigrocincta) and Blue-necked Tanager (Tangara cyanicollis). The Golden-hooded Tanager is brightly colored with a bright golden hood (from which it gets its name), turquoise blue wing coverts and rump, and black wings and tail. The main diet of the Golden-hooded Tanager is fruits and berries, but it consumes insects as well. Although the Golden-hooded Tanager is listed as a species of Least Concern by the IUCN, there is little or no information on population size and demographics of this bird.
