These features make male birds conspicuous wherever they are.

This Euphonia’s scientific name is euphonia elegantissima. The word “elegantissima” refers to the elegance that is incredibly true with this bird.

Like many species, female blue-hooded Euphonia birds are duller than males with a brown-gray color.

The blue-hooded Euphonia distributes in many parts of Central America in Costa Rica, Belize, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Panama.

Their habitats are subtropical, and or moist montane forests, as well as degrade formerly forested areas.

These birds feed on fruit and berries, mainly Mistletoe berries.

When the breeding season starts, female birds build their nests in a slight recess, in banks or areas with clumps of short vegetation. These nests are made from leaves, rootlets, moss, and lichen.

Currently, the population of the blue-hooded Euphonia is quite stable.
