Shining Honeycreepers are small tropical tanagers. They occur from southeastern Mexico south to extreme northwestern Colombia. This species is sexually dimorphic. Shining Honeycreepers are usually seen in small groups, often mixed with tanagers of a different genus. There are two subspecies of Shining Honeycreeper, but these do not differ greatly. The Shining Honeycreeper is very similar to the Purple Honeycreeper (Cyanerpes caeruleus). Formerly the two species were considered to be conspecific, but the distributions of the two overlap in eastern Panama and in northwestern Colombia. The Shining Honeycreeper usually is considered to be common, and its conservation status is rated as "Least Concern."
