Bird Families of the World

Brazilian Tanager

The tanagers  comprise the bird family Thraupidae, in the order Passeriformes. The family has an American distribution. The Thraupidae are the second-largest family of birds and represent about 4% of all avian species and 12% of the Neotropical birds. I have separated the various species according to the genera where they to belong. Some genera are now treated as members of other bird families
