It features a coppery-red crown with black edges that create a mask, and the remainder of the upper body is brilliant straw to pale greenish-yellow.

The wings and tail are brownish with broad blue-green edges.

While the underparts are pale yellowish buff with a blue-green tint on the throat and front of the neck.

The female is identical to the male, although she looks to be considerably duller.

The Burnished-buff Tanager may be found in the Amazon Basin.

Notably in the Amazon River’s discharge region and the upstream drier portions of watersheds in the southeast Amazon Basin bordering the Cerrado.

Subtropical or tropical moist lowland rainforests, dry savanna.

Subtropical or tropical dry sparse vegetation, and subtropical or tropical intermittently wet or flooded lowland grassland are its native habitats.

They may be found in savannas, cerrados, gallery woodlands, and forest edges.

Burnished-buff tanagers forage for berries and fruit alone most of the time, although they can also be encountered in couples.

They also sift through the vegetation in search of insects.
