The Glistening-green Tanager (Chlorochrysa phoenicotis) is endemic to the South American countries Colombia and Ecuador. It lives in subtropical and tropical moist montanes.

It is a small colorful bird, with an average of 13.5 centimeters as other members of the genus Tangara(5.3 in). It is also common in orchards and park. It moves through the canopy, making itself inconspicuous, as its apparently flashy blue-green coloration camouflages it well amongst the foliage while essentially a bird of humid forests.

This bird species is also a regular visitor to bird feeding stations, where it is far more conspicuous.
