Large, plain tanager, grey overall with hints of olive-green in good light; note contrasting black wings with a paler patch at base of primaries. A habitat generalist often found around palm trees and in open shrubby areas, gardens, and forest edges. Usually in pairs or small flocks, sometimes with other species. Often quite noisy and conspicuous, it gives a series of sputtering squeaks or a single nasal “swee?”
