The Palm Tanager anatomically is very similar to the more common Blue-gray Tanager, but with a duller coloration that changes with the light. Most often it looks gray, but with the right light, some feathers turn to blue and olive. It also has black wings. Both species like to eat fruit primarily, and are found in pairs of the same species, but this species particularly likes to feed on palm fruit, hence it’s name. It is frequently spotted in the Caribbean lowlands like most tanagers. It does not approach feeders as much as other tanagers though.
