The blue-naped chlorophonia (Chlorophonia cyanea) – a big name for a small South American bird. All populations are associated with humid forest in subtropical highlands and on the lower slopes of mountains, but it occurs nearly down to sea level in the Atlantic forest. Especially in the Atlantic forest region, it can also be found locally in gardens and parks bordering its preferred habitat. Although this species' distribution is highly disjunct, making it appear rare, it is generally fairly common within its range. Occurs in pairs and more often in groups or families up to approximately 12 individuals. Spends long periods in clumps of mistletoe, forages mainly from mid-levels to canopy, generally inconspicuous except for occasional soft calls. Noted for gleaning insects on mossy limbs.
